MPC InCision successfully performs 37 slot cuts in deepwater
A major operator in the Gulf of Mexico was faced with debris build-up behind a concentric gravel pack string. In order to remove the debris using a chemical wash, multiple slots or holes in the concentric string were needed. Due to the close proximity of the gravel pack screens, the conventional method of using explosive perforating charges was not a reliable option due to the risk of damage.
Baker Hughes, a GE company (BHGE), recommended the MPC™ InCision slot cutter to provide the precise cuts needed to allow the operator access to the debris without causing any damage to the outer screens.
