New DTS interpretation improves matrix acidizing offshore Mexico

The Schlumberger ACTive live downhole coiled tubing (CT) was selected for real-time treatment monitoring of subsequent matrix acidizing jobs. The ACTive CT services convey live downhole measurements on fiber-optics, telemetry-enabled CT, and consist of a bottomhole assembly, surface electronics and interpretation software. Downhole data, including internal and external pressures, temperature, casing collar locator, gamma ray and distributed temperature sensing, can be used for various intervention operations independently. However, PEMEX was most interested in how these measurements can be used collectively to optimize acidizing.
