Customized configurations enable efficient formation pressures and complete fluid characterization

When flexibility and versatility are required, the Reservoir Description Tool (RDT™) tool collects—in a single deployment—formation pressure, fluid ID, and samples. Using the Focused Oval Pad and next-generation Integrated Characterization Section, combined with the Fluid Identification Section, the RDT tool captures the complete fluid composition and high-quality samples.

Source Probe Selection

Complex conditions require unique solutions. Our customizable service allows formation pressures and anisotropy data to be collected with our standard Dual Probes. When sampling or downhole fluid identification is required, we offer the Oval Pad, the industry’s largest single-pad surface flow-area probe. For minimizing rig time, nothing but the best is required. The Focused Oval Pad combines the extra-large surface flow area of the Oval Pad empowered by split-flow focusing. It delivers the lowest contamination samples possible with industry-leading efficiency.

Dual-Probe Section

The unique Dual-Probe Section offers increased efficiency through its ability to perform multiple tests with a single set of tools. Dual Probes enable more reliable determination of formation pressure and mobility, as well as a more detailed understanding of heterogeneity and anisotropy.

Flow Control Pump Sections

The total performance of a system is limited by the weakest link, and collecting clean fluid samples requires best-in-class flushing pumps. The RDT Flow Control Pump Sections are proven to be the most versatile with a full range of differential pressures, the highest horsepower, and the fastest rates.
