Halliburton and GroundMetrics launch 3D formation evaluation service with innovative sensor technology

Published by
Oilfield Technology,

Halliburton has announced an agreement with GroundMetrics, a San Diego company specialising in the development of electromagnetic sensor systems, to deliver full field reservoir characterisation and monitoring services.

The collaboration combines GroundMetrics' capabilities in electromagnetic and resistivity sensing, which helps determine the types of fluids present in reservoir rocks, and the expertise of Halliburton in logging, petrophysics and earth modelling. Leveraging the capabilities and expertise of both companies will enable the generation of 3D saturation models that integrate with other reservoir diagnostics and management workflows to help reduce subsurface uncertainties, assisting operators in making better production-related decisions.

These advanced capabilities are especially beneficial in mature fields and unconventional reservoirs where data obtained from across the field helps operators monitor fluid flow, perform optimisation of horizontal drill paths and assess hydrocarbon pay zones with greater accuracy. The technology also plays an important role in IOR and EOR operations assisting with better identification of injection patterns in water, steam, chemical and CO2 floods.

"Collaborating with GroundMetrics accelerates and deepens our ability to provide operators with greater subsurface insight of their reservoirs," said David Topping, vice president of the Halliburton Wireline and Perforating product service line. "The technologies and expertise we’re bringing together can play a significant role in helping our customers reduce exploration and development costs and increase oil production."

"Deploying unique technology is the best way to differentiate in a competitive industry," said George Eiskamp, CEO of GroundMetrics. "By combining Halliburton’s global operations and our leading sensor system technologies and proprietary data science solutions, we are well positioned to help upstream operators optimise their reservoir’s value."
