AFR™ Azimuthal Focused Resistivity Sensor

Delivers high-resolution borehole images while drilling

The AFR™ sensor from Sperry Drilling services delivers high resolution imaging for a new level of insight into your reservoir. The AFR sensor provides four types of data:

  1. Omni-directional, laterolog-type resistivity data
  2. Electrical images of the formation
  3. At-bit resistivity (ABR) measurement.
 

AFR Sensor Benefits

  • Gain insight into your geology with high-resolution images illuminating fractures, thin beds, and dip
  • Position your wells precisely in the pay zone by visualizing AFR sensor data in the StrataSteer® 3D geosteering model
  • Improve interpretation with accurate resistivity values in highly conductive muds and high formation resistivities
  • Make real-time decisions confidently with at-bit measurements alerting you of fluid type and lithology changes

The AFR sensor belongs to the new generation of logging-while-drilling sensors from Sperry.

The New Generation Delivers:

  • Deeper reading, higher resolution LWD sensors
  • Faster telemetry - through data compression, customizable data streams, and full IntelliServ® Network compatibility
  • Greater reliability - through component integration, meaning fewer electrical contact points at risk

The new generation sensors enable new understanding of formations not even possible with legacy systems.

Summary Summary Southern USA: AFR™ Sensor Delivers High-Resolution Imaging in Tight Gas Field Sign in required
The operator of a tight gas field sought to increase their reservoir understanding. However, wireline imaging tools were getting stuck in deviated wells in the heavily fractured formation.
Summary Summary Middle East: Middle Eastern Oil Company Saves $450,000 Field Testing the InSite AFR™ Sensor Sign in required
By eliminating unnecessary runs, use of the InSite AFR sensor in three horizontal wells saved about nine days of rig time worth approximately $450,000. Also the sensor clearly revealed numerous geologic features.
Summary Summary UK: Operator improves reservoir understanding in a complex-fracture horizontal well in hard-rock granite basement Sign in required
In an offshore well in the United Kingdom (UK), the operator wanted to perform an evaluation of a complex-fracture horizontal well in a hard-rock granite basement. It was critical to identify faults, along with large and small fractures, in order to determine if the reservoir was economically viable to produce.
Summary Summary Middle East: Operator Gathers Valuable Formation Features with the Only Service in Larger Hole Sizes Sign in required
Due to a lack of seismic data in a challenging remote location offshore in the Middle East, an operator was drilling several deepwater pilot holes for gas exploration in order to gain as much information as possible for well correlation and to gather insight into understanding the geological structure and depositional environment.
Summary Summary Papua New Guinea: AFR™ Sensor Helps Major Operator Isolate Problematic Shale Formation, Saving Valuable Rig Time Sign in required
In the Antelope field, Total needed to accurately pick the 9-5/8-inch casing point in the uppermost portion of a fractured carbonate reservoir above a total loss transition zone, while being able to isolate the reactive and over-pressurized shale above the reservoir.
Summary Summary Oman: Operator Proves Cost Savings With LWD High-Resolution Imaging Service Sign in required
Borehole imaging is one of the most rapidly advancing technologies in wireline logging and logging while drilling (LWD). In an onshore horizontal well in Oman, an operator needed more details of the geology in the reservoir in order to gain a better understanding of the distribution of faults, natural fractures, borehole breakouts, and drilling-induced fractures along the well path.
Summary Summary Middle East: AFR™ Guides Horizontal Wellbore Within Two-Foot Narrow Target Zone And Saves $1.25 Million Per Lateral Sign in required
Harsh desert conditions of a mature field in a remote Middle East location were only part of the challenge this operator faced in planning a horizontal well through a fractured carbonate formation.
