ABERDEEN, UK Halliburton has deployed its Armada sampling system to capture bottomhole samples of reservoir fluid for Oilexco North Sea Ltd. The system was loaded and collected nine samples in a drillstem test at 228°F (109°C) and 3,500 psi well conditions.

A second well was sampled at bottomhole temperature of 260°F (127°C) and 10,170 psi bottomhole static pressure. Samples were collected uncontaminated by drilling fluids while expediting turnaround time and eliminated the use of wireline.

The Armada sampling system requires minimal rig-up and run-in time plus operates in normal or hostile cased hole environments. Because samples are maintained in a single phase, the sampler also eliminates surface re-combinations.
