OBMI Oil-Base Microimager

To get the highest value from measurements made with the OBMI oil-base microimager in oil-base, nonconductive, and invert-emulsion mud systems, our multidisciplinary interpretation specialists help you as needed with expert image and dip interpretation. Significant structural and stratigraphic information can be gained, including the identification and characterization of fractures, faults, slumps, and other features. Textural information such as the porosity distribution in carbonates and the sorting index in sandstones can be obtained, along with net sand calculation in highly laminated reservoirs. A proprietary Petrel E&P software platform plug-in is used to facilitate well-to-well correlation and improve field development.
