Rely on unparalleled performance, in all wellbore and reservoir conditions

Your reservoir evaluation revolution begins with the Ora platform’s digital hardware. Rated to 200 degC and 35,000 psi with dual-flowline architecture and featuring smart downhole automation, the platform represents a new benchmark in wireline formation testing capability. It performs reliably and effectively in all conditions, including tight or unconsolidated formations and challenging fluids.

Wideband downhole pumps precisely govern the broad dynamic range with automated flow management and 0.05- to 108-bbl/d capability.

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 laboratory-accuracy metrology options customized for your objectives:

  • Dual-flowline spectrometry
  • Calibrated resistivity
  • High-accuracy density
  • Full-spectrum viscosity
  • Highest-accuracy and -resolution pressure gauge.

Start with your objectives to get the data you need

To get the right data, wireline formation testing must begin with simulating your objectives in relation to asset performance:

  • Hydrocarbon in place
  • Connectivity
  • Deliverability
  • Flow assurance

Starting with this intelligent planning approach, hardware, data acquisition, and the data integration plan are optimized to ensure you get the maximum performance and value from your operation. You’ll see farther into the reservoir, confirm reserves sooner, maximize your production, expedite your completion strategy, and get a head start on your field development plan and facilities design.

Ora platform reservoir evaluation

“The new platform helped us test, find gas condensate reserves, and collect samples for PVT analysis in our most important land discovery in Mexico of the last 25 years. Tests were conducted in submillidarcy heterogeneous carbonate formation at reservoir temperature above 175 degC.“

— Victor Navedo, Lead Reservoir Engineer, Petróleos Mexicanos (Pemex)

Conduct deep transient testing early, on wireline

The Ora platform’s dual-inlet packer system, high flow rate, and active hydrocarbon circulation bring deep transient testing to wireline. The pump’s capacity of more than 100 bbl/d and the ability to circulate fluids to surface ensure well control while you are getting the information you need to confirm zonal deliverability or hydrocarbon in place or derisk a well test with an agile solution that does not require flaring or disposal of fluids at surface.
