Introduction to Well Logging
Wireline well logging is one of the fundamental technologies for hydrocarbon exploration. Depending upon the depth drilled, the complexity of the formations and the type of well drilled (exploratory or development), we will run one or two of the most simple logs to a dozen of the most complex logs.
Vertical Drilling Multi-Stage Frac - Sandstone / Gas
This video shows the steps we undertake when we have a well with multiple sandstone reservoirs that need to be stimulated with fracture treatments. It also provides some basic information about how a well is completed for production
Waterflooding is the use of water injection to increase the production from oil reservoirs. Use of water to increase oil production is known as "secondary recovery" and typically follows "primary production," which uses the reservoir's natural energy (fluid and rock expansion, solution-gas drive, gravity drainage, and aquifer influx) to produce oil
Rocks and sediments have varying amounts of magnetic minerals in them. In broad terms, igneous and metamorphic rocks (basement rocks) have higher magnetic mineral concentrations than the overlying sediments, where most of the oil and gas is found. We observe that the largest "magnetic anomalies" over a given sedimentary basin originate from the variations in magnetic mineral content in the basement rocks. These anomalies can be tens or even hundreds of times greater than those that might be produced by magnetic mineral concentrations in the overlying sediments.
Hydrocarbons are generated and/or trapped at depth and leak in varying quantities to the surface. The oxidation of the migrating hydrocarbons by bacteria and other microbes produces magnetic minerals in the sediments, which have been observed by laboratory analysis of cuttings taken during the drilling process. We also know that these shallower magnetic bodies produce anomalies of shorter wave length than the anomalies produced by the deeper magnetic bodies in the basement rocks.
The detection of the shallow anomalies that overlie deposits of oil and gas starts with data gathered by low-level and close-grid flights of airborne magnetometers. Then the data are processed, using sophisticated mathematics, to eliminate the effects of basement rocks, the earth's magnetic field and cultural contamination from structures on or near the surface, such as railroad tracks, pipelines, bridges, towers, etc. Our shareholders and investors can find, in their respective portals, more details about this technology, our vendors, and their historical results.
