Borehole Survey Services For Oil & Gas
If you work in the oil and gas industry and need to have a gyro multi-shot survey performed on a wellbore, Bore Path Services has everything you need to receive highly accurate data. We use the latest north-seeking gyro technology to collect data and present it to you in a report or plot format for easy comprehension.
Memory Method & Real-Time Method
When performing a borehole survey using a north-seeking gyro, we are able to collect data using either the memory method or real-time method.
With the memory method, we use the gyro tool system to record data on a memory chip while the system is hoisted in and out of the wellbore.Once the gyro tool returns to the surface, you’re able to download the data to software for processing.
With the real-time method of surveying, also called Surface Read-Out (SRO) or Surface Recording Gyro (SRG) method, we use the gyro tool system along with an electric wireline telemetry system to measure data from the gyro tool in real-time on a surface computer. We are able to process data while the gyro tool simultaneously moves in and out of the wellbore.
Drop Method Gyro Surveys
Another method for gathering data during a borehole survey is to perform a drop method gyro survey, which saves you time and money on your project.
Instead of using a wireline or slickline to hoist the gyro tool system in and out of the wellbore, we are able to drop the system inside a fluid-filled drill string landing above the drill bit downhole. This method allows you to continue to operate your drilling rig while the gyro tool system performs the survey.
This survey method is performed using the memory method, and it implements the latest technology available in solid state north-seeking gyro. The design is extremely rugged and acquires highly accurate data.
Whipstock Or Directional Motor Orientations
We also perform orientation surveys using our gyro tool system. To do this, we hoist the gyro tool system into the drill string, landing in a UBHO or Mule-shoe sub that’s aligned with the tool-face (or business side) of a whipstock or directional motor.
We are then able to use the gyro tool system to collect directional data and survey data to place the whipstock or motor at the desired direction or heading for drilling.
This type of survey can be performed in memory mode (also referred to as single-shot mode) or in real-time mode with electric wireline telemetry and conveyance.
Bore Path Services is also able to perform directional surveys in high-temperature environments. We are able to use custom thermal pressure housings to protect the equipment, which can withstand temperatures up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit in a wellbore.
High-Angle Or Inclination Surveys
Bore Path Services uses the latest in north-seeking gyro technology to perform surveys that the competition just can’t. Using our gyro tool system, we are able to perform borehole surveys from vertical to horizontal wellbore positions (with only a few limitations).
