DQ1000 Wellsite Mass Spectrometer Gas Analyzer

The portable and fully automatic DQ1000 wellsite mass spectrometer gas analyzer provides real-time semiquantitative formation fluid analysis and evaluation. The analyzer operates on the principle of direct quadrupole mass spectrometry in which chemical compounds are ionized, isolated, and measured. It employs a continuous scanning mode, providing a substantially complete mass spectrum at each depth and enabling a more comprehensive spectral fingerprinting of hydrocarbon characteristics. 

The DQ1000 analyzer can measure C1–C5 and C6–C10 hydrocarbons, identify the three major classes of volatile organic species (alkanes, cycloalkanes, and aromatics), and monitor chemical species with variable solubility in water, such as benzene, toluene, n-hexane, and cyclohexane. The versatility of the DQ1000 analyzer enables enhanced geochemical fingerprinting for fluid type and compartmentalization studies, and helps ensure the health of the BHA and reduce drilling costs.

The analyzer’s modest size, weight, and electrical requirements make deployment possible in even the most restrictive environments. The DQ1000 analyzer uses drilling data such as ROP, pumpstrokes, and depth to derive a lagdepth for geochemical logs. While drilling, analytical results can be viewed on-screen locally and remotely, and are always available for immediate LAS import into commercially available graphics packages.
