When drilling
for hydrocarbons,
uncertainty is
part of the job.
The drilling of an exploration well aims at confirming the accumulation of petroleum. Thus, a reservoir can only be confirmed when drilling through it. Technology has improved in the exploration phase but there is still uncertainty when it comes to determining the volume in the appraisal phase. It is difficult to know if the reservoir is worth developing.

The true size of the field can only be estimated. Usually, additional wells are drilled in order to measure the volume. It is time consuming and expensive due to the size of the operation. The environmental impact can be large both in terms of energy consumption during the operation and in terms of intervention in the seabed. With Hydrophilic technology the job can be done easier, quicker and more environmentally friendly.

Probe does the job
easier and much
quicker.

With hydrophilic technology, you’ll be able to find the oil/water contact without having to drill additional wells. This will significantly shorten the appraisal phase and limit the enviromental impact of developing an oil field.

Hydrophilic Gauge Technology

With our in-development gauge technology we will be able to observe existing reservoirs and measure the depth of the free water level. When, during the lifetime of a hydrocarbon well, the free water level sinks or raises, Hydrophilic will let you know. You will be well informed to make crucial decisions based on the remaining volume of the reservoir.

With Hydrophilic sensors mounted in each existing well, you’ll have continuous information on the OWC levels. This lets you know which reservoir contains the most remaining hydrocarbon, and that is where you want to place your next well.

More information on the Hydrophilic Gauge Technology is coming soon.
