Real-time analysis and control of drilling parameters prevents breaks and fractures in core samples

Vibrations Monitoring Maximizes Core Integrity

Publication Date: 01/14/2015

During core sampling, drillstring vibrations were adversely affecting the efficiency and quality of core recovery.

Using high-frequency acquisition and dedicated processes within the vibrations monitoring service of the GN4 acquisition system, vibrations were monitored from the surface. This enabled the operator to manage drilling parameters and minimize drillstring vibrations, ensuring the recovery of a clean and undamaged core.
