HOUSTONWeatherford International plc has made the commercial release of the Raptor 2.0 cased-hole evaluation system at the Society of Petrophysicists and Well Log Analysts Annual Symposium.

The Raptor 2.0 system, which has been tested and proven in more than 200 field runs, combines a pulsed-neutron wireline logging device with petrophysical workflows, a wide range of answer products and support from a team of experienced production petrophysicists to provide actionable reservoir data.

The Raptor wireline logging tool is said to feature the first and only five-detector array on the market, which makes the system 250% more sensitive than traditional, two-detector pulsed neutron tools.

By providing high-fidelity oil-water and gas-liquid saturation measurements, the new system is said to enable operators to increase their reservoir knowledge during completion, production, and rejuvenation operations. This knowledge can then be leveraged to increase hydrocarbon recovery.

Olivier Muller, Vice President of Wireline and Testing Services at Weatherford, said: “Today, operators are only able to identify and recover a fraction of the oil in their reservoirs. Our new Raptor 2.0 system helps clients look behind the casing to identify the type, location, and amount of hydrocarbons in their reservoir, so they can realize the full potential value of their asset.”
