Saltel Patch enables modifying the Injection profile in a water injector well
The injector well in question was completed with 41/2in tubing and liner. This well was injecting in two different reservoirs.
Both modelling and empirical data concluded that injection in the top reservoir pushed the gas cap to the oil producer wells, without providing meaningful pressure support.
The client requested an Expandable Steel Patch to modify the injection profile.
A 41/2in Saltel Reinforced Patch was selected and installed on ACTive coiled tubing.
