Halliburton introduces new borehole imaging technology

Halliburton Company announced a new wireline logging service that helps operators acquire more accurate well data to better evaluate production potential called StrataXaminer. The tool delivers high-resolution images of the reservoir structure to identify bedding, fracture patterns, fault zones and potential flow barriers with increased accuracy. Source: WorldOil

Obtaining high resolution images in oil or synthetic-based fluid systems has been an industry challenge for decades. StrataXaminer has ten different operating frequencies and customers can select any three frequencies to record simultaneously. This dynamic range allows operators to customize the image quality based on the formation type, fluid system, and record in a single pass.

Our team used StrataXaminer to target sedimentary features in tight sands to better understand our fracture network and maximize production. Halliburton successfully completed the logging in one run and collected valuable imaging data with fractures characteristic of the target formation.

The tool is available in three versions to optimize the acquisition quality in various size boreholes and can operate in higher pressures than previous technologies. The 8-pad tool provides the greatest borehole coverage as it records data up and down a well, improving data quality and providing more acquisition options on a single run-in hole.

StrataXaminer reduces reservoir uncertainty by providing the industry’s highest resolution images in the widest variety of borehole conditions. This service is the latest in a series of formation evaluation technologies that Halliburton has introduced to help operators better understand the subsurface for more accurate decision-making and maximized asset value.
