Fiber Optic Cable in an "S" Type Well.

Fiber Optic Cable in an "S" Type Well.

Fiber Optic Cable in an "S" Type Well.

I'm looking at possibly running some fiber optic cable in a few of my wells to get a better representation of a production log and to try and find our if we have any thief zones. I'm looking for a way to ensure that I get the cable to the bottom perfs in these wells and I would like the fiber to be in the annulus since these are all plunger wells. I'm just wondering if there is a simple way to ensure that a don't damage this cable while going in hole with it. I was kind of thinking of running the cable in with my tubing and leaving a "tail" of cable with a weighted rod or something on it to get the cable downhole. Thing is, I can see the cable going to the low side of the well in the directional portion, as well as the tubing, and getting damaged or sheared off. Anybody have any thoughts on how I could make this happen?
