Down Hole Video Camera – Amazing To See How Actual Oil & Gas Wells Look Like

Have you ever imagined about the down hole conditions of oil and gas wells? 


We initially think that they might look pretty smooth tubular with perforated holes and down hole tools. Until we’ve seen these footage, you will be amazed how the technology can help you to look into down hole. They are excellent VDOs because they demonstrate the well conditions in various situations. You can see down hole tools (packer, side pocket mandrel, etc), perforated holes, damaged casing, hole shape, tubular conditions, etc. What’s more, down hole camera can demonstrate how oil and gas wells produce. With this application, it will help oil companies to identify the well production issue more accurately.
