SCAR Inline Independent Reservoir Fluid Sampling

Clean, reservoir-representative, single-phase samples

SCAR inline independent reservoir fluid sampling delivers contaminant-free fluid samples from deep within the formation. SCAR sampling is a complete approach, designed to capture reservoir fluid samples more safely and reliably. From collection to analysis, our full chain of custody ensures the fluid samples we collect on site are the ones we analyze.

Eliminated sample contamination

SCAR sampling captures fluid samples individually or sequentially, directly within the flow stream. This collection method eliminates the possibility of contaminants in each sample caused by dead volumes.

More-reliable, safer sampling

Sample integrity and the safety of operations can be compromised by using single large nitrogen charges. SCAR samplers have small, independent gas charges—with 90% less nitrogen than conventional samplers—to ensure each individual sample remains at or above reservoir pressure. Nonreactive sample chambers also ensure trace elements are retained. The sampling system used as part of the Quartet downhole reservoir testing system enabled by Muzic wireless telemetry allows independent and redundant sample capture in samplers via wireless commands while retaining redundant hydraulic control. 

Faster wellsite handling

To meet your specific test requirements, the SCAR system offers a broad range of sizes, ratings, and activation options. Its shorter length allows faster handling at the well site.

Complementary downhole configuration

Run the SCAR system as part of the Quartet-HT high-temperature downhole reservoir testing system or the Quartet system enabled by Muzic telemetry. These systems deliver the highest-quality pressure measurements and representative fluid samples with maximum safety and efficiency for altogether higher-performance reservoir testing.
