  21. Injection Profiles - Procedures: Logging Procedure • Logging procedure: • Intensity profile. • (One “Slug” of radioactive material.) • Velocity profile. • (Multiple stationary readings.) • Downward channel check, if applicable. • No Flow check, if applicable. • Upward channel check (shoe or top perf.) Injection Profile School - Cardinal Surveys Company

  22. Injection Profiles - Procedures: Logging Procedure • Logging procedure: • Packer check. • Tubing drop shots. • (Verifies meter rate.) • Check injection rate and record. • Shut-in temperature surveys as required. • Crossflow checks. • (Necessary to interpret Shut-in Temps.) Injection Profile School - Cardinal Surveys Company

  23. Injection Profiles - Procedures: Rig Down • Remove tools from the well and bring into lubricator. • Shut well in. • Rig down. • Return the well to injection. • Monitor injection rate and pressure. • Report anomalies. • Inspect well head, location, etc. • Clean up. Report unsafe conditions or problems. Injection Profile School - Cardinal Surveys Company

  24. Calculations and Interpretations:Volumetric Flow Rates • Volume= PI x Dia^2 / 4 * L • Volumetric Flow = Vol / Time Diameter Length Injection Profile School - Cardinal Surveys Company

  25. Calculations and Interpretations:Application of Volumetric Rates • Tracer Elapsed Time Runs • Stationary Velocities • Spinner Flow Meters • Tubing Drop Shots • Crossflow Checks • Production Log Velocities Injection Profile School - Cardinal Surveys Company

  26. Calculations and Interpretations:Caliper Log - Required! In standard 5 1/2” Casing: • A 1/4” buildup = 11% Error! • A 1” buildup = 39% Error! Injection Profile School - Cardinal Surveys Company

  27. Calculations and Interpretations:Injecting Temperature Survey. • First pass - Logging down (always) - First time to tag up • The logging speed is 50-60 feet per minute. • The well is logged once from 200 feet above the injection packer to L.T.D. while the well is injecting. Note: Due to diurnal-nocturnal temperature variations of injection fluid, it may be advantageous to defer the injecting temperature survey until immediately prior to well shut in. Injection Profile School - Cardinal Surveys Company

  28. Injection ProfilesExample Calculations • I.D. = 4.96” • Reaction Time = 26.5 sec. • Tool Spacing = 5 ft. Injection Profile School - Cardinal Surveys Company

  29. Injection ProfilesExample Calculations • I.D. = 4.96” • Reaction Time = 26.5 sec. • Tool Spacing = 5 ft. • Calculated velocity = 0.189 ft/sec • Calculated volumetric flow = 0.0252 cu.ft./sec • Flow = 388 BPD Injection Profile School - Cardinal Surveys Company

  30. Calculations and Interpretations:Injecting Temperature Survey. • Temperature surveys are always run down (going in the hole). • The initial temperature survey should indicate: • Well total depth (when corrected to depth control logs). • Possibility of fluid loss below L.T.D. (log total depth), or bottom of injection loss. • Mechanical/well bore problems preventing movement of tool. • Decision to proceed! Injection Profile School - Cardinal Surveys Company

  31. Injection Temperature

  32. Calculations and Interpretations:Correlation Log • Gamma Ray and Collar Log • For Depth Correlation Purposes • Earlier / Original Logs Better • Avoid Depth Creep • Good Quality Copies Injection Profile School - Cardinal Surveys Company

  33. Calculations and Interpretations:Intensity Profile • Tool configuration - one scintillation detector located below the ejector. • Readings are made versus depth. • Radioactive material is ejected ("slug") above the perforated or open hole interval. • Tools lowered approx. 20 ft. below slug, and logged through slug ("drag run"). Injection Profile School - Cardinal Surveys Company

  34. Calculations and Interpretations:Intensity Profile • Repeat and catch slug at frequency adequate to determine fluid loss. • Slug logged at the constant speed. • Repeat until slug stops moving or is lost to formation. • Loss calculations from area under curve Injection Profile School - Cardinal Surveys Company

  35. Calculations and Interpretations:Intensity Profile • Quantified loss profile • Bottom of injection movement (or loss below L.T.D.) • Possible channeling outside casing • Possible holes in pipe or other mechanical problems. • Independent of wellbore diameter changes. Injection Profile School - Cardinal Surveys Company

  36. Intensity Profile (“Drag Run”)

  37. Calculations and Interpretations: Velocity Profile - Velocity Shots • Data are recorded versus time. The tool string remains stationary • Eject a burst of radioactive material ("slug"). • The transit time of the slug moving to the detector is recorded. • Terminate and verify after 5 minutes. • Repeat until zone is profiled. Injection Profile School - Cardinal Surveys Company

  38. Calculations and Interpretations: Velocity Profile - Velocity Shots • No movement is a “No Flow Slug” • Channel checks (upward and downward) • 100% stations (normally three 100%). • Placed between the packer and the top perforation or top of the open hole interval. Injection Profile School - Cardinal Surveys Company

  39. Calculations and Interpretations: Velocity Profile - Velocity Shots • Channel checks - special velocity shots. • Ejected into flow. • Detector may be moved to locate or follow a channel. • Downward channel check prior to No Flow. Injection Profile School - Cardinal Surveys Company

  40. Calculations and Interpretations: Velocity Profile - Velocity Shots • Calculations of the percent loss are performed using transit time between the ejector tool and the gamma detector. • Calculations convert linear velocities into volumetric flow rates in conjunction with caliper data (well bore diameters). Injection Profile School - Cardinal Surveys Company

  41. Velocity Shot Example Injection Profile School - Cardinal Surveys Company

  42. Velocity Shot Example Channel Check (No Channel Indicated)

  43. Calculations and Interpretations:Tubing Drop Shots • In tubing above packer. • Tool positioned ahead of slug 4 - 6 times. • Velocity in tubing converted to volumetric flow rate. • Used to verify injection rate. Injection Profile School - Cardinal Surveys Company

  44. Calculations and Interpretations:Shut In Temperatures • The number of runs and timing depends on well conditions. • Well and lubricator MUST be fully sealed. • Indicates long term storage of injected fluid volumes. • Indicates external channels • Radius of investigation - deep formation. • Cross flow to verify fluid movement. Injection Profile School - Cardinal Surveys Company

  45. Temperature Logs can not distinguish between events occurring inside, or outside the wellbore • Injection Temperatures show the bottoms of fluid losses and major velocity changes • Shut-in Temperatures indicate the tops of events and give a relative magnitude of fluid storage • Injecting and Shut-in logs merging indicate the absolute bottom of fluid movement

  48. Calculations and Interpretations:Crossflow Checks • Multiple slugs across interval. • Recorded vs. depth. • Runs approx. 5 min. • Crossflow quantified by slug peak movement vs. time. • Top slug should not move. • Good for very slow rate wells.
