Coiled tubing (CT) has proven to be efficient and relatively inexpensive for a broad range of intervention operations. However, with increasing well complexity and expected low oil prices for the foreseeable future, the need for real-time data during intervention planning and execution is crucial to well efficiency, cost effectiveness and performance. Fishing is an excellent example. For decades it has been characterized as an art. But without knowledge and certainty about the position and location of the fish and the condition of the wellbore, complicated fishing operations might require multiple runs, adding nonproductive time (NPT) that can render an otherwise valuable well useless.
