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, such as high inclination and high-risk wells.

These high-quality pore space measurements are acquired while drilling, without impacting ROP, and include accurate porosity, fluid type identification, and an estimate of permeability.

Improve reservoir exposure while geosteering

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 and increasing net to gross pay by quickly identifying reservoir quality changes. This approach also enables you to make faster decisions while drilling.

Save time during sampling operations

The real-time T2 spectrum allows identification of the formation fluid type while estimating saturation levels, permeability, and in-situ fluid viscosity. When the MagTrak tool is positioned below the FASTrak™ LWD fluid analysis sampling and testing service’s tool in the BHA, you can station the FASTrak packer for an optimal sample immediately after evaluating the interval. The MagTrak tool has the industry’s most comprehensive borehole size coverage, ranging from 5.75 in. to 12.25 in. and can be run in almost any borehole fluid with Rm ≥ 0.02 ohm-m, at temperatures up to 302°F (150°C).

Reduce risk with sourceless porosity

In wells where the lost-in-hole risk is high or regulations do not permit radioactive sources, the true sourceless porosity data delivered by the MagTrak service is a viable alternative to traditional density-neutron porosity logs.

Simple to use with minimal preplanning

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