Product Sheet: DQ1000 Wellsite Mass Spectrometer Gas Analyzer

Date: 11/10/2016

The portable and fully automatic DQ1000 wellsite mass spectrometer gas analyzer provides real-time semiquantitative formation fluid analysis and evaluation. After hydrocarbons have been liberated from mud, organic and inorganic compounds in drilling mud are continuously analyzed and correlated with depth.

The analyzer operates on the principle of direct quadrupole mass spectrometry in which chemical compounds are ionized, isolated, and measured. In addition to total gas and C1–C5 hydrocarbon analysis, C6–C10 hydrocarbons are measured and the three major classes of volatile organic species (alkanes, cycloalkanes, and aromatics) are distinguished. This enables enhanced geochemical fingerprinting for fluid type and compartmentalization studies.
