XBAT™ Azimuthal Sonic and Ultrasonic LWD Service

Building on the success of the BAT™ and QBAT™ tools, Sperry Drilling services has taken velocity measurements to a new level with the XBAT™ azimuthal sonic and ultrasonic LWD service. The tool combines multipole transmitters and four azimuthal receiver arrays, along with a 4-pinger acoustic caliper.  

The XBAT LWD service delivers accurate acoustic measurements in a wide range of formations via sensors and electronics that are much less sensitive to drilling noise and have a wider frequency response. The result is a greater signal-to-noise ratio that enables better measurements even in noisy drilling environments and poor hole conditions.

The XBAT LWD service helps you to drill safer, faster, and on target in challenging environments, mitigating risk through pore pressure prediction and hole shape information for wellbore stability monitoring, and optimizing the position of your wellbore with synthetic seismograms that tie back to surface seismic data.

The XBAT LWD service includes:

Summary Summary Integrated Drilling and Logging Approach Maximizes Formation Reservoir Exposure
The Halliburton product service line’s 24/7 support – both in-house and within the integrated real-time operation center (iROC) – ensured that every wellbore section, including the depleted reservoir interval, was drilled with minimal fluid losses and that the wellbore was at total depth (TD) before the oil-water contact (OWC).
Summary Summary USA, Alasaka: Sperry Drilling’s XBAT™ Azimuthal Sonic and Ultrasonic Logging-While-Drilling Service Help Stabilize Formation in Well Sign in required
In this well, drilled on a man-made island in the Beaufort Sea of Alaska, the operator’s primary objective was to log cement behind casing. Historically, well inclinations as high as 80 degrees in applications in this area create cementing challenges including micro-annulus, channeling, and fluid losses. In these high inclination wells, typical logging tools with two receiver arrays 180 degrees apart were unable to provide sufficient indication of the orientation of the azimuthal view of the casing and thus, no confirmation of where problems occurred.
Summary Summary Norway: Operator saves at least two days by running XCAL™ LWD caliper tool to determine hole quality and proper cement calculations Sign in required
To develop an offshore well in Norway, an operator needed to perform proper cement calculations, confirm that the hole was properly reamed, and evaluate packer placement for completion.
Summary Summary Nigeria: XBAT™ Azimuthal Sonic and Ultrasonic LWD Service Delivers Real-Time Shear and Compression Data to Help Stabilize Shale Formation in Deepwater Well Sign in required
An operator in Nigeria drilling a shale well in 3,827 feet (1,666 meters) of water encountered issues in determining the actual minimum mud weights needed to maintain stability of the formation.
