VIVID®Acoustic Listening Platform and Ultra-High Sensitivity Sensors to Play Key Role in Casing and Completion Evaluation, Cement Performance Evaluation and Turbulent Flow Analysis
Archer has launched the VIVID® acoustic listening platform — a patented, highly sensitive, acoustic technology that detects, investigates and locates leaks in real-time, verifies cement barrier seals and characterizes downhole events with unparalleled precision. The announcement was made at the SPE/ICoTA Coiled Tubing and Well Intervention Conference and Exhibition 2018 following an intensive program of field testing conducted globally.
The VIVID® platform consists of full-spectrum acoustic sensors that accurately measure the broadest frequency bandwidth and amplitude of acoustic energy with industry-leading sensitivity and can even locate previously indiscernible low energy leaks. Developed by Archer’s Research and Development team and independently-tested, VIVID® will play a key role in casing and completion evaluation, cement performance evaluation and turbulent flow analysis.
Key applications for VIVID® include:
