Schlumberger introduces new resistivity, borehole imaging service

Offshore staff

BAHRAIN – Schlumberger has introduced its new MicroScope high-resolution resistivity and imaging-while-drilling service. The service gives laterolog resistivity and full borehole images in conductive mud from a single collar.

“The application of MicroScope in (a) challenging thin tight gas reservoir has helped us make accurate real-time decisions while drilling,” said Peng Hai Run, chief geologist, PetroChina SWOGC. “The success of this well has opened more opportunities to our company in developing the thin target reservoirs.”

“Optimal placement of the borehole in the reservoir, accurate evaluation of formation properties and identification of geological features that impact producibility are key elements of a successful well,” said Andy Hendricks, president, Drilling & Measurements, Schlumberger. “This service, already successful in more than 150 jobs across 10 countries, addresses these challenges in unconventional shale plays, carbonate and clastic reservoirs.”
