Delivering the Ultimate Value

  • Stand alone tool design requires no additional downhole electronics – allowing optimal performance in temperatures up to 482° F (250° C)
  • Combines with an electromagnetic field generator, to pinpoint the location of the wellbore with greater accuracy
  • Minimized tool diameter, enabling deployment in concentric completion strings and small wellbore architectures
  • Supports full integration with directional well planning software, delivering an advanced 3D visualization of the wellbore’s position
  • Proprietary past tool communication capabilities allowing multiple cased hole logging tools to be deployed on a common run for real-time pressure, temperature, gyro, bond and CCL while ranging
