The digital electronics of the Quanta Geo photorealistic reservoir geology service operate at frequencies three orders of magnitude higher than conventional imaging technology to generate core-like representations of reservoir geology and structure.
The innovative sonde design of Quanta Geo service provides nearly total circumferential coverage in 8-in. boreholes and also makes it the industry’s first imaging tool that can acquire borehole images while running into the wellbore. Downlogging capability improves image quality by reducing stick-slip motion, in turn reducing the potential for having to conduct multiple runs and the likelihood of sticking. The combination of eight fully independent arms and swivel-jointed pads maintains good application in changing wellbore profiles to deliver high-resolution geologic images in highly deviated and horizontal wells; rugose boreholes and washouts; shale, carbonate and clastic plays; and HP/HT environments. Even in highly laminated formations with extreme resistivity contrasts and OBM that can be up to 100,000 times more electrically resistive than the formation, Quanta Geo service provides high-resolution images that accurately represent formation geology.
