Title: SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR DEPLOYING AN EXPANDABLE SEALING DEVICE
Abstract:
A system operable to seal at least a portion of a well downhole from a horizontal segment of the well includes an electric wireline having a position locator for locating the position of a flow control device or leak in a tubing segment of the well. The wireline system also includes a setting tool for actuating an expandable patch positioned that is configured to restrict the flow of fluid into the tubing segment at a determined location determined by the position locator. An actuator may be coupled to the setting tool and configured to actuate the tool to install the expandable patch at the determined location to restrict flow. A tractor powered by the wireline may also be provided to transport the system along the horizontal well to position the patch at the determined location.
