Location: Balikpapan, Indonesia
Pertamina was seeking to restore production in a dual-string offshore completion. The main challenge was to perforate one string while avoiding damage to the other. YTA provided Pertamina with an orientation solution by using a Magnetic Orientation Tool (MOT). This is a device that distinguishes between two completion strings and orients the perforation guns so that they perforate one string at the intended angle while preventing damage to the other. The data was read at the surface using Warrior 8 which give real time insight on the perforation gun’s orientation. The operation was a complete success; Pertamina incurred no additional non productive time or lost production.
