Weatherford Laboratories is the
industry leader in providing traditional laboratory services at the
wellsite in order to evaluate and characterize potential
Utilizing Labs to Wellsite services provides an
opportunity to battle the issues associated with high levels of
both vertical and horizontal heterogeneity. Now laboratory
quality data can be delivered at TD and utilized to make more
informed drilling and completions decisions for the subject
Monitoriing trends in available hydrocarbon content, organic
richness, production index, thermal maturity, mineral
concentrations and brittleness for a subject well aids in:
- More effective exploration programs by screening many wells
across a leasehold or entire basin.
- Maximizing production of vertical wellbores by immediately
identifying the most attractive intervals for hydrocarbon
production including potential by-pass pay zones or secondary pay
- Maximizing production of horizontal wellbores by accurately
identifying the proper depth to land the lateral and confirming
zonal containment while drilling the lateral section.
- Minimizing completions costs by identifying the more brittle
zones ideal for fracturing and more ductile zones to potentially
avoid when staging fractures and stimulations.
