Inspection tool uses high-definition frequency to identify corrosion in up to five tubular strings

Metal corrosion can cause serious well integrity issues and nonproductive time. To address this, Halliburton launched the Electromagnetic Xaminer V (EPX V), which can identify corrosion and casing defects in up to five strings, at the 2017 SPE Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition in San Antonio, Texas. In this video from the conference on 10 October, Freeman Hill, Product Manager – Well and Reservoir Surveillance, describes how the EPX V uses high-definition frequency technology to provide a thorough understanding of pipe defects and metal loss throughout the well. He also discusses the various deployment methods, including slick line, for the system.
