Permanent Downhole Gauge Technology For Cemented-In Completions
At GEO PSI we produce some of the worlds best downhole instrumentation sensors. Cementing the pressure sensors in behind the casing is becoming increasingly more common and accounts for a large percentage of our work.
A controversial topic seems to be whether to use an encapsulated cable or a bare cable?
Advocates of encapsulation point out that the plastic jacket overtop the steel cable provides acts as a bumper and improves survivability of the cable during the deployment of the system.
Some of our customers prefer that bare cables be installed, citing that they are worried about channelling or bond issues in the cement.
If you’re looking for more information on which type of cable would be best for your system our regional sales staff would be happy to help
