Procedure for running Log on

Drill Pipe ( TLC)



1) Flush through the drill pipe on the way out of the Hole at
the highest possible flow rate (> 2500 l/min. In 5" DP.) to
get rid of bigger particles (cement leftovers etc.) from the
inside of the pipe. (Drilling)

2) Get a copy of the Pipe Tally before Rig-up. (Sch.)

3) Control that the splits in the Diverter Plate are facing 90°
away from the Cable to prevent it from catching the Cable
during logging (Same as splits in Rotary Table Bushing.)
or take out the Diverter before Rig-up. (Drilling.)

4) Rig up Logging Tools and Docking Head (DWCH). If using

any "Drilling x-over" make sure that ID is at least 2 1/2".
Check that inside shoulder of x-overs are tapered.

5) Test Logging Tools with Locomotive (PWCH) and Cable.


6) Screw on the first Stand before tighten up the x-over and

Docking Head to prevent too much bending on DWCH if
using the Rig tongs. (Drilling.)

7) Run in Hole with Drill Pipe. It is not recommended to use

Jar in the String. ( If using Jar, set cocking tension as high
as possible (> 20.000 Lbs) to prevent the Jar from closing

if meeting restrictions in the Hole and cut / damage the

Cable.) (Drilling.)

8) The following procedure should be followed to prevent
foreign objects from falling down and clogging up the
Docking Head.

# 1 Drift the pipe. Use maximum rabbit on the way in and

let it go all the way through the stand. (Rabbit
clearance ≤ 1/4".)
# 2 Check pipe threads for wood parts and other loose
# 3 Mud / Brine has to be filtered to avoid big particles to
getting stuck
in the Docking Head.
# 4 Pipe must be free of cement.

9) Furthermore the following has to be done during tripping:

# 1 Do not rotate the pipe more than 180° in one direction

with the
Logging Tools and DWCH Under the Rotary Table.
Make a log
of the rotation. Ref. Fig 8. (Drilling)
# 2 Soft starts and stops.
# 3 Use minimum dope on pin only.
# 4 Start circulation every 10. stand and circulate for at
least 5 minutes
after annulus returns are achieved. Circulate 5 minutes
every 5.
Stand where there is normally lots of debris (i.e. Kick-
off areas.) that
will Back-Flow into the pipe when tripping in Hole.
# 5 Circulation rate: 2500l/min. ( or as high as possible.)
Use screen /
filter on the mud pumps.
# 6 Write down the pressure increase every 10. Stand. (At
the same Pump rate a variation in pressure indicates
debris building up in
Docking Head)

# 7 Monitor the mud return to trip tank. (Displacement as
open end DP.)
# 8 Run in Hole with care (1m/s) and watch the weight

10) Stop 50 m above Casing Shoe / Liner Hanger or closest

whole Stand.
Use a “Flapper Valve” (i.e. Baker 4R-G or bigger) above the
Cable Sidedoor Entry Sub this must have an ID >1 7/8” and
be located one Stand / Single above the CSES to secure
enough space for 1 11/16" FPIT / Back-off. (Circulating
Hole through the CSES is ex-center.) (Drilling.)

11) Circulate for at least 20 min. (@ 2000-2500l/min.) while

Schlumberger is rigging up. (Drilling.)

12) Check with Control Room that it is a proper tension on the

anchors to position the Rig right above the BOP’s and to
minimalize Rig drift to prevent the cable from getting
squeezed in the Ball joint above the BOP’s.

13) Trim the Rig a couple of degrees to the opposite direction

of the Cable exit to force the Pipe to stay at opposite side
of the Cable in the Rotary Bushings. (Ref. Fig. 7.)

14) Cable Rig-up:

# 1 A fixing point for Upper Sheave Wheel in the Derrick
that is rated
for a load equal to 2 x the Cable braking strength =
40.000 Lbs.
is needed.
#2 Hang Upper Sheave Wheel behind Wind Wall in the
Derrick in bad weather to avoid the Cable from
jumping off in strong wind. (Ref. Fig. 1)

#3 Make sure that there is good clearance between

Upper Sheave Wheel and block / top drive. (i.e. Put
Hang-off line inside finger

#4 A weighted fresh water pill is recommended during
running /
Latching of Locomotive (PWCH) in salty Mud.

15) If On top of the CSES a Single / Stand of 4 1/2” or 5" DP

(OD “Pin Tool joint” = 6 3/32”) should be installed to
prevent sudden changes in diameter just above the Cable
Door in the CSES.(to reduce the possibility of squeezing
the Cable. Ref. Fig. 4,5 and 9.)
Lift up "Cable Sidedoor Entry Sub". (CSES) and run in 100
m of Cable.

# 1 CSES is to be screwed in with a Chain tong and made

up with
same torque as drill pipe of the same threads (4 1/2”
IF) (Ref.
CSES sketch).
# 2 Screw in a Stand / Single on top of CSES before
torqueing up
with rig tongs to get right torque and avoid bending
forces on
# 3 Set the tong jaws on the Saver Sub when torqueing,
not on the
Cable Door or Clamp Housing.
# 4 NB! Pack-off Seal in CSES is rated for a maximum
pressure of 3000 psi.

16) Start circulating @ 200 l/min. keeping Pump pressure

below 60 Bars (if possible) and run in PWCH and Cable.
Increase Pump rate gradually when needed.
17) The Driller has to watch the Pump pressure when the
Cable is inside the pipe and stop the Pumps immediately if
a sudden pressure increase occurs. (Drilling.) Run in Cable
to approximately 100 m above Docking Head.

18) Stop circulation and log the Cable weight.

19) Start Mud Pumps and run in Cable at a low speed until
Latching is
achieved. (Pump rate: 1000 to 2000 l/min.)

# 1 Adjust Pump pressure to 60 Bars (keep Pump rate 
700 l/min.) and write down this rate in pt. 24) # 3. This
Pump rate is the maximum circulation rate during
logging operation to avoid wash- out of the Cable in
Cable Sidedoor Entry Sub.
# 2 Stop the Mud Pumps.

20) Test Logging Tools. (Sch.)

21) Tighten up the Pack-off seal and Cable Clamp on the

Cable Sidedoor Entry Sub and do a pull test on the Clamp.
(3500 Lbs) (Sch.)

22) Before starting to run in Pipe and Cable simultaneously:

# 1 Make sure that the Cable is not touching the split in

the Bushings. ( Use “TLC Bushing) with groove for the
Cable Ref. Fig.7)
# 2 Lock the Rotary Table.
# 3 Good communication between the Driller and
Winch Man is essential. A separate Radio Channel is
imperative. Nobody not directly involved in the TLC
operation is to use this channel!!!

# 4 The Driller have to inform Winch Man what he is going

to do and
what he is doing i.e.
* " 1m to Slips, setting Slips, pulling Slips."
* "Start going up / down".
# 5 Never move the pipe without the Winch Man
confirming that he
is ready. (Drilling)
# 6 The Cable has to go in the opening of the Slips. Use
Slips if the special TLC Bushing is not available.
(Bushing with
groove for the Cable.) (Drilling)
# 7 A Float valve (Flapper) is recommended to use one
Stand / Stand above the CSES. (To prevent unintentional
Latch-off due to Back- flow.)

23) Run in 1-3 stands, mount a snatch block on the Cable and
adjust it just enough to let the elevator go clear of the
Cable when opening and closing at a Pipe connection
height of 1.2-1.5 m to make the angle of
the Cable as small as possible.
# 1 Pull the Cable back with the pulley and leave it in this
during the whole logging operation. (Ref. FIG.1)(Sch.)

24) Proceed Running in Drill Pipe and Cable simultaneously

# 1 Fill up every 5th Stand. (The condition for this is that
a Flapper Valve without hole is installed)
If not, break circulation every 5th Stand, until annulus
returns have
been achieved. Circulate down every stand when
passing tight
# 2 Do not circulate during RFT / MDT pressure points.

# 3 Circulation rate: = the rate found above in pt. 19) # 1.

Maximum Circulation Rate = l/min.
 60 Bars / 700 l/min. To avoid Cable wash-out through

25) Log down to 10 m above TD in Open Hole.

26) Reverse the procedure and log out until Cable Side Entry
Sub is back
on drill floor.
# 1 Flag the Cable and the first Pipe Stand out of the Hole.
(Ref. Fig. 2 and 3)
# 2 Circulation is not needed on the way out of the Hole.
# 3 Do not move the Pipe down more than 10 cm. with out
consulting Schlumberger during up log due to open
Caliper. (NB! Heave on
Floaters.) (Drilling)
# 4 Leave the Top Drive and the top Stand screwed on to
CSES to avoid mud spillage if back flow, maintain Well
control and to be
able to Circulate if needed. ( Ref. Fig. 6. Drilling)

# 5 Never rotate the drill string more than 180° one way
with DWCH
and logging Tools underneath Rotary Table. (Drilling.)

27) Take off the Cable Clamp and Pack-off. (Sch.)

28) Latch off PWCH from Docking Head. (Sch.)

29) Pull out Cable and rig down Cable Side Entry Sub. (Sch.)

30) Pull out of Hole with drill string. (Drilling.)

# 1 Circulate at a high Pump rate (2500 l/min. for 4-5
minutes) to
clean the circulation ports in Docking Head. (Slug pill
# 2 Pump Slug if desired. (Drilling)
# 3 No sudden starts / stops. (Drilling)

31) Be extra careful when Logging Tools are passing through

B.O.P. (Drilling)

32) After - calibrate and clean the Logging Tools. Rig down.
