Core Gamma Logger System


Introduction Meeting the needs of todays oil industry, The days of recovering huge and easy to produce oil reservoirs are past. The emphasis now is on enhanced secondary and tertiary oil recovery, this involves elaborate and expensive production methods and surface equipment. Core analysis information is vital to these projects and delays can add substantially to the already high costs. Security DBS has introduced a new coring service called Core Quick Look (CQL), with the objective of providing basic reservoir data and core evaluation at the well site. The latest version of the gamma ray logger can be equipped with removable density logger devices, consisting of a medium energy source (cesium 137). The density device is carefully positioned on the gamma logger in such a way that the source is emitting across the core.

The result is that scattered gamma rays reaching the detector opposite the source are counted as an indication of formation density. The number of scattered electrons in a formation (electron density) can be related to the bulk density of the formation in gm/cc.

Benefits & Applications Once the data has been collected by the computer and processed, gamma rays and density logs are produced on a single sheet of paper along with the mud log. The benefits that this information provides are as follows : The gamma ray log will indicate sand and Shales sections by picking the naturally occurring gamma rays given off by the Shales, leading to lithological sequencing or correlation with down hole logs from any nearby offset wells. The gamma gamma or density logger measures the electron density of the formation. It will identify evaporate minerals, detect gas bearing zones, determine hydrocarbon density and evaluate shale sand reservoirs and complex lithologies. Both logs are supplied by the same compact and reliable logger, rationalizing to the extreme the access to those relevant data.

Method Once the first core is retrieved and laid down on the catwalk, the core gamma logger is run lengthwise from top to bottom of the core barrel. The recorded data is then collected and transferred to the compact computer, where the information is processed and the log is printed out. The same gamma logger can then proceed to take readings from the second core whilst the first core logs are being processed. The same procedure is carried out for the second core as was done for the first core. These logs are then presented in colour along with the mud logs over the same interval. The time taken for the logging and processing is approximately two hours after the core has been laid down on deck (90 section). However, this cannot be considered rig down time because, as information is being processed, the next barrel can be redressed and running in hole for the next run. Service Security DBS is committed to offering the oil industry a complete service specially designed to provide reliable core data results at the well site in a matter of hours after the core reaches surface. This data is not meant to replace laboratory analysis of the core sample, our goal is to provide you with a quick method of correlation and evaluating your immediate testing program. The CQL can be hand carried equipment brought to your well site by the Security DBS engineer. However, with prior notice this equipment can be shipped out along with all the other coring equipment in self contained water tight containers.
