Joint announcement by Drillmec and GEOLOG

January 29, 2018

Drillmec (http://www.drillmec.com) and GEOLOG (www.geolog.com) have entered into an Agreement for joint business development and provision of Drillmec’s HoD® (Heart of Drilling) service. The HoD® is a Continuous Circulation System which offers uninterrupted bottom hole pressure management during connections. Combined with a High-Resolution Flow Rate Monitoring System, HoD® gives operators the capability to achieve the planned TD in challenging drilling environments substantially reducing operational, HS&E, and therefore financial risk. GEOLOG will initially target HoD within the geothermal market as well as addressing operations with narrow operating pressure windows.

New Technical Paper

July 1, 2016

GEOLOG and Kuwait Oil Company jointly presented the paper “The Application of Well Site Isotopic Analysis for Reservoir Evaluation” (#1533) at the SPWLA Symposium (June 2016). This paper documents for the very first time in the oil industry the successful measurement and utilization of carbon isotopic data from C1, C2 and C3 while drilling in real time, to characterize an oil reservoir.
The scope was to characterize the reservoir fluids and the source rock fluids in terms of maturity, and identify any vertical or horizontal variations across the basin. The successful evaluation of the reservoir was based on a novel technology which permitted extending the range of carbon isotopic analysis beyond methane, to light hydrocarbons such as ethane and propane. This technology advancement has broadened the analysis done while-drilling and generated an isotopic data density much superior to what can be obtained in the laboratory.

SPWLA Symposium

May 17, 2016

As customary for GEOLOG, we will present one of our recent published technical papers at the yearly SPWLA Symposium - this year held in Reykjavik, Iceland, on June 25-29.
