At Weatherford Laboratories, there is nothing routine about routine core analysis. We take a tailored approach to conventional testing, working closely with clients from project inception to develop the best analytical program for the best price. And we are renowned for building flexibility into the process.

Routine measurements are performed on whole core or plugs and form the building blocks of effective reservoir characterization. In recent years, however, "routine" core analysis has become increasingly complex as clients move into new E&P frontiers that pose unique technical challenges. Weatherford Laboratories is exceptionally well placed to assist with those challenges by providing diverse experience, proprietary processes and equipment, and an outstanding laboratory infrastructure around the world.

Weatherford Laboratories - sorption properties

Today our services encompass coal characterization, adsorption isotherm analysis, in situ permeability testing, formation evaluation, CBM reservoir engineering, and core-free critical desorption pressure determinations. Weatherford Laboratories leads the industry in comprehensive sorption reservoir characterization. Authors of the Gas Research Institute books on CBM gas content analysis.


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.


Weatherford Laboratories - labs to wellsite

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. Minimizing completions costs by identifying the more brittle zones ideal for fracturing and more ductile zones to potentially avoid when staging fractures and stimulations.


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.
