HPTP wells drilled in shallow (less than 100m) water depth.
Recovery of down hole data is extremely difficult.
The high temperatures 'fry' equipment.
People have suggested using 'mud coolers', this only cools the 'mud' on the surface and as it is pumped.
Mud that is circulated out of the hole, is extremely 'hot' and not much cooling is achieved during transit through the shallow water depths especially across the tropics, where water temperatures are high.
During 'wireline logging', the 'mud' in the well is 'static', and NOT moving. The wellbore temperatures are continuously at a high level.
These temperatures, (above 350F) are 'frying' the tools, the wireline itself is 'melting'.
Does anyone know of a system that can handle continuous immersion in these 'high' temperatures and recover the well data?
ALL ideas or information will be appreciated.
