HOUSTON -- Wood Group Logging Services has added another 30/30 skid unit to its line of deepwater logging units. The deepwater skid unit has the capability of servicing open-hole and cased-hole wells with depths greater than 35,000 ft (10,668 m) and pressure of up to 30,000 psi.

The skid unit includes zero-discharge technology, a quick-change drum package, including over 40,000 ft (12,192 m) of single conductor line, and a visual fire safe system. The skid unit also features tools that have been adapted to respond to greater depths. The function of the string shot has been enhanced to withstand 30,000 pounds of pressure within a well, the company says.

“The 30/30 unit supports work at some of the highest pressures and temperatures met today,” says John-Paul Jones, president of Wood Group Logging Services. “The ability to have the unit on standby on the drilling vessel or platform is especially beneficial when the drill string gets stuck. Accessing an onboard 30/30 skid unit can save operators the expense of long mobilizations and minimizes lost rig time.”
