Enabled by Wellbore Insights on Delfi

Often, the clear picture from wellbore data only appears once processed data are put into context. Sometimes you don’t know if you met your data-acquisition objectives until after the window of opportunity has passed. Other times, you may be waiting on an answer to plan your next operational steps. Wellbore Insights on Delfi™ provides advanced interpretation and contextualization of data in real time, so you can make better, faster decisions. Interpretation workflows that took days are now completed in hours.

SLB digital operations deliver actionable insights from wellbore data—providing answers when you need them and helping you make decisions when they matter most.

More capabilities, smaller footprint

The intelligent platform’s digital hardware leverages new architecture and metrology to redefine the benchmark in wireline formation testing capability. Rated to 392 degF and 35,000 psi with dual-flowline architecture and featuring smart downhole automation, the platform performs reliably and effectively in all conditions, including tight or unconsolidated formations and challenging fluids.

Wideband downhole pumps precisely govern the broad dynamic range. The focused radial probe accesses a large flow area to quickly acquire the cleanest fluids—with contamination below laboratory detection limits. The dual-flowline fluid analyzer quantifies fluid properties with digital hardware customized for your objectives: dual-flowline spectrometry, calibrated resistivity, high-accuracy density, full-spectrum viscosity, and the highest-accuracy and -resolution pressure gauges.
