Spectral Gamma Ray
The TelePacer* modular MWD platform with spectral gamma ray (GR) provides detailed while-drilling formation structure data. This advanced GR configuration positively identifies stratigraphic laminations along the lateral by giving insight into mineral composition and clay content.
Spectral GR measurements for high-volume reservoirs
Using potassium, thorium, uranium, and total GR measurements, spectral GR provides three additional curves and 2% total GR precision. With this data, you can more efficiently and effectively:
- place laterals and steer within the targeted zone
- identify lateral formation heterogeneity
- determine clay type
- assess clay volume
- perform accurate well-to-well correlation
- infer total organic carbon when combined with information from pilot wells.
This module is offered within the single-collar TelePacer platform. By adding additional components without increasing the length of the drillstring, the TelePacer platform preserves the tight economics inherent to drilling in high-volume unconventional reservoirs.
