MagTrak LWD Magnetic Resonance Service

Maximize production rates and reserves with pore space intelligence

Baker Hughes MagTrak™ LWD magnetic resonance service offers industry-standard, T2-based, real-time magnetic resonance data that locate and identify producible fluids even under the most difficult drilling conditions. This is an alternative to wireline magnetic resonance logging in high-cost, high-risk wells.

These lithology-independent, high-quality measurements acquired while drilling without include accurate porosity, fluid type identification, and an estimate of permeability.

Save time and money

Real-time data offers invaluable support for geosteering while quantifying the amount of recoverable hydrocarbons. You can keep the well path in the most porous and permeable reservoir zone, saving rig time by quickly identifying reservoir quality changes. This approach also enables you to make faster decisions while drilling.

The real-timeT2 spectrum allows you to identify the fluid type while estimating saturation levels, permeability, and in-situ fluid viscosity. The MagTrak tool can be used in almost any borehole fluid with Rm ≥ 0.02 ohm-m at temperatures up to 302° F (150° C).

In wells where the lost-in-hole risk is high, the sourceless and lithology-independent porosity data offered by the MagTrak service will mitigate the risk of losing radioactive sources in your well.

Simple to use with minimal preplanning

The robust tool, designed for everyday use, has a standard data acquisition package, eliminating the need for extensive preplanning and modeling required by other LWD- magnetic resonance systems. As with any LWD job, the prejob operational planning is critical to ensure successful wellsite execution.
