High-quality well data when it matters most

The Reservoir Xaminer service is Halliburton's next-generation formation testing and sampling service that offers solutions for efficiently characterizing dynamic reservoirs. It can test both fluids and rocks to obtain essential information for exploration, production, and injection.

This industry-leading service was engineered with the operator's top reservoir evaluation challenges in mind - acquire more data, customize objectives, increase reliability, perform in tough conditions, real-time monitoring, and reduce operating time.

High performance and reliability

State-of-the-art electronics offer more reliability and reduce nonproductive time. An improved power system allows for more flexible and complex configurations to acquire more data in a single run.

Stress testing

With increased differential pressure limits, the high strength straddle packer enhancement can now initiate and propagate fractures to perform microfrac operations at higher breakdown pressures. Additionally, the controlled flow back feature can measure cap rock closure. 

Low-mobility sampling

A modular tool string and large area probes offer solutions for low mobility sampling based on rock or fluid properties. 

Fluid composition

Halliburton’s ICE Core® optical fluid measurement and analysis service provides gas-oil ratio and light and heavy components, including SARA fractions. Additionally, the fluid ID sensor provides high-resolution density, dielectric, and resistivity measurements. 

Enhanced gradients, four times the data at each stop

The enhanced probe section (EPS) features state-of-the-art, on-depth, dual-probe quartz gauges that capture high-resolution gradients in less time. This provides operators with four times the data density compared to previous technology.

The unique probe design offers a flexible pretest for both high- and low-mobility testing. We offer a variety of probe options to fit each reservoir challenge, including a focused probe, dual probes, and oval pads. The large oval pad is optimized for focused sampling and features an independent pump system for improved control.
