The introduction of a new downhole digital technology has the potential to revolutionize well intervention operations through performance management, faster decision cycles and organizational change. The new system has the ability to send real-time downhole data from well intervention operations to the surface, and from there to data centers anywhere in the world. The system facilitates collaborative work by engaging a broader spectrum of specialists than has been traditionally available at the wellsite.

Case studies are presented taken from over 20 field runs conducted during field integration testing.
