OTC 2016: Baker Hughes showcases cement evaluation service

Offshore staff

HOUSTON – Baker Hughes has received an OTC Spotlight Award for the Integrity eXplorer cement evaluation service.

Its new electromagnetic-acoustic transducers sensor technology allows operators to directly assess the integrity of cement bonds in any current wellbore environment or cement mixture. This revolutionary technique of verifying zonal isolation gives operators the confidence they need to make critical well-integrity decisions. Existing evaluation techniques are acoustic-based.

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.

Baker Hughes is exhibiting at booth #3731.
