Remote Mudlogging

Our remote mudlogging service provides:  Sample descriptions, total gas data, and chromatographic results are recorded post-drilling for presentation on comprehensive, computer-generated well logs through Wellsight Systems; providing a complete geologic and hydrocarbon record of the borehole presented on a mud log.

By utilizing our remote mudlogging services you’ll receive:

  • Our Advanced Gas Detector recording total gas and chromatography 24/7
  • Samples collected after drilling to begin preparation and processing
  • Sample cleaning, sorting, evaluation, boxing, and shipping
  • A fully customized mud log for both vertical and horizontal applications
  • Complete formation evaluation including fractional hydrocarbon analysis, chromatographic ratio plots, and show reports
  • Well review and complete annotation services
  • No need for an on-site mudlogging crew, reducing the need for trailers and lowering the site’s overall footprint

Logs can be customized for desired content and format and plotted at scales from 1:48 to 1:1200 to facilitate correlation between the well log and wireline logs.

Mudlog features include:

  • Linear or Semi-Logarithmic Curves
  • Penetration Rate Curve
  • Gamma Ray Curve
  • Weight on Bit Curve (and/or other Desired Data Curves)
  • Engineering and Drilling Fluid Parameters
  • Sample Lithology (expressed both in percent and in descriptive text)
  • Porosity Information
  • Notations on Visual and Total shows
  • Total Gas Curve
  • Chromatographic Hydrocarbon Curves (C1-C8)
  • Chromatographic ratio plots of Wetness, Balance, and Character to Depict Reservoir Fluids and Locate Contact Points

Total gas and chromatographic data are collected with NorAm’s Advanced Gas Detector (AGD).  All instrumentation is calibrated  at startup and monitored closely throughout the duration of drilling to ensure maximum quality control. Detailed mud log and digital data are transmitted directly to the client post-drilling.  At well conclusion, all data is provided in print and digitally in PDF, TIFF and Log ASCII Standard (LAS) format. All mud loggers are experienced in horizontal and vertical drilling and working with MWD and Directional personnel to maintain the bit path in the formation of interest.
