SureLog-iPCD™ – Enables “Triple Combo” LWD
APS’s iPCD™ (integrated Porosity, acoustic Caliper and Density) sub adds neutron porosity and litho-density measurements to the SureLog™ LWD platform. This capability enables extended formation evaluation measurements from a single additional sensor sub.
The iPCD is a cost-competitive, reliable formation evaluation logging tool that provides the basic functionality for customers to deliver “Triple Combo” services which, until now, have been restricted to the major service companies. When used in combination with natural gamma and resistivity logs, the logs produced by these new sensors provide a timely and useful estimate of the porosity and water saturation for each reservoir formation, typically before significant invasion.
