Halliburton shows new pulsed-neutron reservoir monitoring tool

Offshore staff

HOUSTON – Halliburton’s (NYSE: HAL) Wireline & Perforating business has introduced the Reservoir Monitor Tool 3-Detector (RMT-3D) pulsed-neutron tool that is designed to help solve for water, oil, and gas saturations within reservoirs using three independent measurements (Sigma, CO, and SATG).

The data is collected with one trip in the hole, reducing nonproductive time. The tool is deployed through the casing to quickly log and calculate saturations and other properties that help identify and characterize pay zones.

Halliburton said the RMT-3D analysis packages are useful particularly in recovery projects because they are designed to work in these challenging environments. Using the independent measurements helps to correct saturations for influences from the secondary and enhanced recovery fluids, so better oil saturation profiles can be calculated.
