Weatherford & Acoustic Data Partner for Real-Time Barrier Integrity Monitoring

We are pleased to announce a partnership with Weatherford in which our SonicGauge™ System is deployed with the Weatherford Retrievable Bridge Plug to monitor both initial pressure tests and long-term pressure to confirm continued barrier integrity for up to 8 years. 

Verification is achieved by the SonicGauge located below the plug acquiring and transmitting pressure data to a SonicReceiver located within the Junk Catcher assembly above the plug. The SonicReceiver logs the SonicGauge data to onboard memory as well as its own data from above the plug. This data is then transmitted uphole via a SonicRepeater network for real-time surface read out (SRO).

The downhole data can be periodically downloaded upon retrieval of the Junk Catcher and SonicReceiver to surface. Additionally, the SonicSonde™ can be integrated into the WFT-RBP Setting Tool to gather data from the SonicGauge and SonicReceiver during setting and testing operations.

If you have an application or project in mind, please do not hesitate to contact our Sales Team via the Contact Page for a webex tool demonstration.
