GasView

Optimize production in unconventional reservoirs

You can more accurately identify smaller volumes of formation gas than ever before and reduce the risk of bypassing pay zones.

Unlike conventional qualitative overlay techniques, the Baker Hughes GasView™ service uses a comprehensive response database and improved interpretation methodology to calculate quantitative gas saturation.

Effective for tight gas, CO2 flood, and carbon capture applications

Additionally, the GasView method is a salinity-independent measurement that bypasses constraints that limit PNC-Sigma logging for gas saturation. The GasView method is applicable in extremely low porosity formations, making it ideal for tight gas evaluation.

While initially developed for use in methane gas reservoirs, the GasView measurements are even more sensitive to CO2 gas. This suits applications in CO2 EOR flood monitoring and Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS) projects.

GasView technology addresses a broad range of applications and delivers valuable knowledge to better manage reservoir performance. Applications include

  • unconventional gas evaluation: tight gas, shale gas plays
  • analysis of new well gas content when openhole logs are not available
  • detection of pressure depletion
  • saturation analysis in three-phase reservoirs
  • gas injection monitoring in enhanced recovery and gas storage, including CO2 floods and CCS programs.
