Downhole Sampling

Sample formation fluid at reservoir conditions

Informed decisions require representative sampling

Your laboratory analysis is only as good as the samples recovered. To truly represent the reservoir, formation fluid samples must be collected at reservoir conditions. We deploy pressure-compensating equipment that enables controlled, uncontaminated sampling without flashing—and then maintains those conditions as samples are returned to surface.

Capture with SCAR sampling
SCAR sampling obtains representative, contaminant-free fluid samples and uses 90% less nitrogen than conventional sampling systems.
