Mud Logging

A Mud Logging

geoNEXT, a unique service and system

providing decision-enabling information
for performance improvement
The Vision
Our vision is to provide decision-eenabling
information which will have a direct impact
on performance for challenging exploration
and development projects.

- The geoNEXT engineers, through their experience,

training and competence, will allow us to reach a new
level of service by ensuring the efficient transformation of
quality data into decision-enabling information.
- geoNEXT is focused on adding value through the more
intelligent use of all available drilling and formation
evaluation data. The geoNEXT service represents the
combination of our efforts to improve wellsite safety,
improve drilling performance and ensure more effective
formation evaluation.

The Service
Focused on
With geoNEXT, we will extend the scope of
our Mud Logging service by our continuous Improving

each well.
Before - The geoNEXT engineer will be involved in your
project sufficiently in advance of operations in order to
fully understand :

z the drilling challenges

z the hydrocarbon objectives
z the client service needs
During - Specific geoNEXT tools, which include Smart
Event Detection, the ReservalTM service, Event-based
Reporting and Drilling Engineering Programmes will
make a major impression on their users.

After - The geoNEXT engineer will be responsible for

debriefing your project team at the end of each well,
and will provide assistance with detailed post-well
The System
The geoNEXT system is the result of an
extensive development project and is specif-
Information ically designed to acquire data of unequalled
quality and frequency

It includes features and functions that will greatly

assist in detecting and analysing critical drilling and
formation-related events.

Based on the latest field bus technology, the acquisition

chain can acquire data at up to 50 hz, which will ensure
that the basis of our monitoring reaches new standards
for quality and reliability.

getSMART technology relates the evolution
of multiple parameters in an overall context
to the occurrence of events. Gone are the
days of simple high/low alarms on single

With 45 years of experience in real-time drilling and

Knowledge formation evaluation monitoring, Geoservices has
developed in geoNEXT a revolutionary approach to
event detection.

Enabled by the quality and frequency of geoNEXT
