Weatherford Laboratories - labs to wellsite

By: Omni Laboratories  09-12-2011

Weatherford Laboratories is the industry leader in providing traditional laboratory services at the wellsite in order to evaluate and characterize potential reservoirs.

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 well.

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 zones.
  • 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.

Weatherford Laboratories - fluid phase behavior

Whether your reservoir is a tight gas, gas condensate, conventional oil, heavy oil or bitumen Weatherford Labs results minimize your risk and increase accuracy of your reservoir model. An understanding of the fluid phase behavior of the in situ reservoir fluid is necessary to properly predict current and future fluid behavior during primary.


Weatherford Laboratories - wellsite services

Whether the play in question is a tight gas sand, a CO2 sequestrian job, a shale oil play, or a well at more then 30,000 feet deep on the Outer Contiental Shelf, WFT Labs brings years of experience through hundreds of thousands of feet of core handling and sampling.


Services || Weatherford Laboratories

They're the broad categories of a comprehensive, integrated laboratory service available worldwide from Weatherford Laboratories. We carefully evaluate formation damage in the laboratory so it can be minimized in the reservoir. We evaluate consolidated and unconsolidated cores.
