Gas Samples - Mud Gas and Wellhead
Mud gas samples, like cuttings, are a byproduct of drilling a well and are economical to capture. Analysis of these gases offers a wealth of information to characterize your gas resources and determine the likelihood of associated hydrocarbon liquids.
The combed resources Isotech® Laboratories, the world leader in isotopic analysis, and Weatherford Laboratories have provided you with an unsurpassed team of experts in gas geochemistry. Together we have helped you characterize reservoir charge, distinguish between biogenic and thermogenic gas, characterize thermal maturity of source rocks, and identify reservoir compartment boundaries. Gas geochemistry can also be used to identify completion problems as a result of tubing string leaks or to detect potential for communication between zones behind casing. Proprietary Isotech® Laboratories sampling containers capture and secure top quality samples for laboratory analysis.
Weatherford Laboratories collects samples throughout the life of a well because gas analysis at different stages guides important decisions that optimize production and development planning. Geochemical studies on produced gases offer a wide range of applications. Production allocation when producing from multiple zones, reservoir compartmentalization studies, and time-lapse geochemistry to evaluate changes in the production stream are all used to understand gas behavior and optimize production and well placement.
