Rotary steerable for high-volume shale drilling
RSS™ Rotary Steerable Scout is new and specifically designed
for high-volume shale drilling: vertical, nudge, tangent, and
lateral well profiles with continuous rotation from the surface.
The new electronic control module with a digital mud valve
(patent pending) is housed in a slow-rotating housing for isolation from high shock, vibration, stick-slip, and torsional
RSS™ is fully mud operated. It is built on the proven and
latest mechanical Vertical Scout® measurement and control
electronics platform developed by Sanvean Technologies®
embedded into the tool to deliver precise steering control.

Gas analyzers serve well surface logging
PetroAlert® Model 9200 Gas Analyzer combines selective
detection of a gas chromatograph with continuous monitoring
abilities of a total hydrocarbon analyzer.
It performs fast (<30 sec) C1 - C5 analysis at a detection limit
of <10 ppm as methane while monitoring total hydrocarbons
from 0.003 to 100% as methane — during drilling.

Pipeline leak detection services
Instrumented and optical fugitive methane emission surveys
monitor well site or gathering and boosting station components
within each company-defined area.
Among services: patrol surveillance within high-pressure
pipeline transmission corridors for fugitive emissions, changes
in areas of high consequence, or complex cross-overs.

Real-time, high-resolution geosteering
RockView technology is announced “to make real-time, high-
resolution geosteering possible for the first time.”
The new service uses measurements gathered from a full
range of sensors on COLT and POLARIS BHAs to enable more
accurate wellbore placement plus tangible decrease in footage
drilled out of zone. RockView helps avoid difficulties in predict-
ing exact target reservoir position from the surface.
