AFES Meeting: 13th March, 2019

TEST TEST Abstract: Recent developments in LWD imaging technology have enable the acquisition of high-resolution acoustic borehole image logs in both water-based and oil-based mud.  The upgraded tool records acoustic amplitude, travel-time and sensor spatial position data in high frequency, from which it is possible to make borehole images with 256 azimuthal sector sampling.  Additionally,…

Technical Talk: February 2019 Monthly AFES Meeting

Many thanks to our February speakers Emmanuel Tavernier and our own Chee-Kong Chen, for an exciting presentation on technology developments in production logging using microelectro-mechanical systems and it’s potential future applications. Very much appreciated Emmanuel & Chee-Kong! “Efficiency Improvements in Production Profiling Using Ultracompact Flow Array Sensing Technology”

January Monthly AFES Meeting

A belated, but very big thank you to our January speaker David Dangfa, for presenting on an innovative P&A approach, using salt as natural zonal barrier. Many thanks David!

AFES Meeting: 13th February, 2019

Abstract: Production logging in highly deviated and horizontal are known to be challenging. While conventional array tools have improved to provide answer in some wells, challenge remain with very long tool strings and limitation of sensors. The presentation will introduce a new instrumentation technology using microelectro-mechanical system (MEMS). The technology offers an ultracompact and modular…

AFES Meeting: 16th January, 2019

Abstract: At the end of the production life of a field, it is mandatory to abandon the well(s) to avoid the escape of formation fluids to surface and maintain well integrity. Appropriate barriers (mechanical or natural) are required across various intervals with flow potential for safe abandonment. At times, remedial operations such as perf-wash and/or…

December Monthly AFES Meeting

?Happy New Years? to all our members & friends, and a belated thanks to our December speaker Logan Tippett from Weatherford for his very interesting discussion on slimhole formation sampling and pressure testing. Many thanks Logan!

AFES Meeting: 12th December, 2018

Abstract: This presentation is intended to highlight a reduced risk approach for obtaining PVT samples on Wireline.  By combining a slim formation tester with the ability to run through the inside of Drill Pipe, it becomes possible to obtain fluid samples without several risks inherent to running Wireline.  This technique has been successfully used for…

November Monthly AFES Meeting

Many thanks to Carlos Maeso for his interesting presentation on technology advances in borehole imaging while drilling in oil based mud environments and case study examples.

AFES Meeting: 14th November, 2018

Abstract: Borehole image logs are widely used for lithofacies characterization, structural analysis and geomechanics. Until recently, obtaining high-resolution images in oil-base mud while drilling has been challenging. This has been overcome by a new LWD tool which implements a dual physics approach (including both resistivity and ultrasonic images). The methods used to acquire these images…
