Baker Hughes introduces new cement evaluation technology

Offshore staff

HOUSTON - Baker Hughes released its Integrity eXplorer cement evaluation service.

The company explains that this is a new electromagnetic-acoustic technology that allows operators to directly assess the integrity of cement bonds in any current wellbore environment or cement mixture, whereas existing evaluation techniques are acoustic-based and may not provide the accuracy needed.

While cement compressive strength has typically been used as a key indicator of cement quality, today’s environments require a more detailed assessment. The Integrity eXplorer service provides operators with data about the properties of the respective cement – thereby enabling them to make critical decisions to help protect their assets, reduce non-productive time, and minimize unnecessary remediation.
