A new downhole fluid-sampling tool efficiently separates formation fluid from mud-filtrate contamination in the early stages of the sampling process. This allows acquisition of high-purity fluid samples in a fraction of the time required by conventional downhole sampling technology. The method also gives superior results for downhole fluid analysis. This article describes the advantages of the new, focused-sampling tool through field examples of hydrocarbon and water sampling from the Gulf of Mexico, the North Sea, India and the Middle East.
