TGT launches slimhole tube integrity technology

Pulse1 diagnosticsTGT has launched Pulse1, the first slimhole tube integrity technology in the industry that delivers actual wall thickness measurements in eight sectors with tube wall condition sensing ‘all around’

This advanced diagnostic capability allows operators to more accurately assess the condition of production tubulars than previously possible, helping the industry to ensure safe, clean and productive well operations.

Mohamed Hegazi, TGT’s CEO, said, “Proactive inspection and accurate diagnosis of well integrity is fundamental to ensuring safe production, and Pulse1 delivers on that promise for primary tubulars. Conventional measurements will still have a role to play, but the addition of Pulse1 diagnostics will address customer needs with greater accuracy and fill crucial gaps in the market.

Pulse1 is a slim technology that delivers true sectorial thickness with high accuracy in multiple tubing and casing sizes, on any conveyance type, and in a single descent with no mechanical contact. Coupled with TGT’s unsurpassed domain expertise, Pulse1 is defining a new benchmark in well integrity diagnostics.”

Pulse1 is the latest extension to TGT’s Pulse platform: one of five proprietary technology platforms providing the oilfield with powerful through-barrier diagnostics. The company added that Pulse1 is primarily designed for ‘production tubing’ and provides responses which are up to five times more accurate than conventional techniques.

Ken Feather, TGT’s chief marketing officer, said, “Pulse1 has been designed to meet the growing industry need for ‘no compromise’ integrity management and overcome the drawbacks of current technologies, particularly mechanical calipers and conventional electromagnetics. This makes it the ideal choice for routine or targeted tube integrity surveillance, especially when accuracy is the top priority.”

“Production tubulars have a special role in keeping wells safe, clean and productive, and they need to perform 24/7 without compromise. Operators use calipers to monitor tube wall thickness, but the error can be 10 per cent or higher. Pulse1 delivers up to two per cent accuracy in eight sectors around the tube, providing operators with a higher level of integrity assurance than previously possible,” continued Feather.
