The Halliburton StrataXaminer™ Imaging Service is a new wireline logging solution that helps operators acquire more accurate well data, better evaluate production potential, and increase return on investment. StrataXaminer delivers high-resolution images of the reservoir structure to identify bedding, fracture patterns, fault zones, and potential flow barriers with greater accuracy.
StrataXaminer helps operators better understand the structural complexities in their reservoir and make more informed drilling, completion, and production decisions.
Resolution images of the reservoir
Operating frequencies—an industry first
Pass produces one optimal blended image
Image coverage in an 8-inch borehole
StrataXaminer delivers the sharpest images in oil-based mud to visualize and quantify reservoir characteristics and reduce subsurface uncertainty.
StrataXaminer transmits high-resolution images of the reservoir structure to identify bed dips, open and closed fractures, fault zones, and potential flow barriers with increased accuracy. Eight imaging pads, with 24-buttons each, use high-frequency signals coupled to the formation to acquire the sharpest images in oil-based mud.
StrataXaminer simultaneously captures downhole electrical images at three operating frequencies —an industry first. This enables operation with oil or synthetic-based drilling fluids that typically make realistic formation images more difficult. During pre-job planning, operators can set the frequencies to enhance the StrataXaminer range according to local geology and define parameters during processing to select the best frequency for given fromation responses.
The eight-arm StrataXaminer produces 100 percent image coverage in an 8-inch borehole, using a patent-pending pad carrier to allow both up and down logs. Combined with in-tool memory, this increases combinability and helps decrease the number of runs to save valuable rig time. StrataXaminer integrates fully with other Halliburton solutions, including Xaminer® Sonic Imager Service.
