MDT Forte and MDT Forte-HT Rugged and High-Temperature Modular Formation Dynamics Testers

Wireline formation testing platform qualified for challenging environments and high temperatures

Our new MDT Forte qualified rugged modular formation dynamics tester and the high-temperature version of the MDT Forte-HT tester are a complete redesign and reengineering of the workhorse MDT modular formation dynamics tester for sampling and formation testing. By extending the reliability, efficiency, and applicability of the MDT tester while minimizing operational risk, the MDT Forte and MDT Forte-HT testers deliver robust downhole fluid analysis (DFA), fluid sampling, and transient testing to meet the challenges of today’s oilfield operations.

Built on experience, engineered and qualified for the future

Extensive qualification testing of the design, components, and entire systems proves that the MDT Forte and MDT Forte-HT testers tolerate excessive vibration at all stages of use: from low-frequency shaking during transit to high-impact shock and vibration downhole at extreme temperatures. The redesigned electronics system incorporates surface-mounted components on a ruggedized chassis that overcomes the conventional fragility of electronics when operating in tough logging conditions. Qualified for 100 operating hours at temperatures up to 400 degF [204 degC], the system is ideally suited for operations in the most challenging environments, such as deep water, drillpipe conveyance, HPHT wells, and remote operations.

Real-Time Density Finds Three Fluid Contacts

Downhole fluid analysis during openhole logging provided the operator with critical insight to the fluid density, formation pressure, and pressure gradient along with downhole compositional analysis and fluid mobility values.
Measurements from the InSitu Density sensor identified the location of three fluid contacts for gas, oil, and water during logging to enable the operator to optimize the design of a subsequent drillstem test.
