Annulus Pressure Responsive (APR) tools, used for cased-hole test, are safe, fast and reliable, with unlimited flow and shut-in cycles, and full bore tools. Testing wellbore size is from 4-1/2" to 9-5/8".
This test string is used for cased-hole test and can run in a hole for a relative long duration flow test. It is composed of a multiple circulating valve (OMNI valve), test valve (LPR-N valve), retrievable packer (RTTS packer), gauge carriers and so on. These tools can undertake 15,000 psi pressure and be H2S sustainable. The minimum full-bore size is 2.25" ID for 5" APR tools and 1.8" ID for 3-7/8" APR tools.
This string is operated by annulus pressure. It is safer, faster and more reliable than ever. APR testing string can test one target formation without any un-plugged perforated intervals under the test interval with one packer, or any selected formation with two packers. Other smaller gauges or tools can run through them for perforating, pressure testing, PVT sampling, acidizing and fracturing, etc. This tool string can test several intervals one by one in a single trip. In high volume wells, the full opening features permit flow rates high enough to obtain more definitive test data, so test results are more reliable.
