Some years ago, I was involved with a coiled tubing operation on an ERD well where we planned to drill out a drillable bridge plug within the liner.
All the CT simulations showed that we would have very little weight to drill the plug out. We therefore used a tool run above the CT motor that when the bridge plug was tagged the CT tool activated by flow, anchored its self to the tubing wall and had a stroking mechanism to apply constant weight on the bit and motor to successfully mill out the bridge plug.
The tool worked well but I have not seen it again since.
Does anyone know of this tool or something similar?
Also, is there a tool that can be run on coil that would tell you how much weight you had applied on the CT tools when down hole setting a wireline lock? I'm not looking for real time read out perhaps just a tool that would shear or read or store in memory the weight on bit whilst working at depth in a horizontal well.
Thanks for the feedback gents. For sure, all of your
comments and suggestions are very worthwhile considering thank you. I'm compiling a list of options to review and in time make contact with the various vendors to discuss in detail.
I would however still be interested in finding a CT stroking type/pusher tool for milling out bridge plugs if one still exists to make a comparison with a CT or wireline tractor operations.
The operation I have in mind already plans to have coil in the well plan and so it would be good to use the coil rather than wire as this would necessitate a surface equipment change out and more POB.
