Insights into the Emerging Formation Sampling While Drilling Technology

Abstract

Formation pressure testing and fluid sampling while drilling has been a vital request for reservoir characterization and the EOR process. The main advantages of using LWD for testing and sampling are the minimum contamination of the gathered fluid samples with mud invasion, in the same time, the testing and sampling operation becomes compliant with the business need to reduce rig time and cost.

This presentation will focus on the available technology for both Baker Hughes and Halliburton for LWD formation testing and fluid sampling, also, it will highlight the operational aspects and tool limitations, finally it will outline the best practice supported by case histories.
