3D radial probe
Perform formation testing where previously not possible.
The Axton dynamically compensated single quartz gauge in the testers provides your formation testing with an operating range to 410 degF and 31,500 psi. This fast-stabilizing single-crystal quartz gauge operates in dual-frequency mode to measure both temperature and pressure.
Using only a single crystal avoids the calibration mismatch that can occur when different crystals are used to measure pressure and temperature. The Axton gauge obtains accurate pressure data because it is temperature calibrated with data precisely measured by the same single quartz crystal. Accuracy and speed are further enhanced by using a single crystal because the time that conventional gauges require to completely temperature stabilize across two crystals is eliminated.
The extensively qualified MDT Forte and MDT Forte-HT testers extend the versatility of the industry-workhorse MDT modular formation dynamics tester to high-temperature well conditions.
Our reservoir evaluation experts meet with you to design the tester module arrangement and specify test procedures from the wide variety of productivity and permeability tests along with fluid extraction and sampling, usually achievable in a single run of the toolstring. We monitor in situ pressure and fluid measurements in real time to ensure that the job objectives are met.
Our multidisciplinary interpretation experts then work with you as needed to leverage this powerful data, such as building predictive reservoir fluid models to determine compositional gradation and reservoir connectivity across the field.
Acquire fully representative, single-phase, pressure-compensated samples during openhole logging operations and using the MDT modular formation dynamics tester.
Limit pressure drawdown during fluid extraction and sampling to optimize well tests and facility design.
Increase the length scale by obtaining permeability and anisotropy away from the wellbore to better understand reservoir heterogeneity.
Recombine liquid and gas phases of samples retrieved from an open hole.
Downhole fluid analysis disproves dry well concerns by identifying reserves and establishing crossflow as the water source, offshore Mexico.
Pressure gradients are routinely used to determine fluid contacts. The accuracy of static formation-pressure measurements directly affects the estimation of original oil in place (OOIP).
Robust downhole-fluid analysis, fluid sampling, and transient testing to meet the challenges of oilfield operations.
MDT Forte and MDT Forte-HT testers deliver robust downhole-fluid analysis, fluid sampling, and transient testing.
Case histories from varying borehole and mud conditions, including highly deviated and ultrareach extended horizontal wells.
