Weatherford International plc announced the official launch of its Compact oil-base mud microimager (COI), a slim-profile tool that delivers fullbore, high-definition images in wells drilled with oil-, diesel- or synthetic-base muds. The tool's 4.1-in. (104-mm) diameter enables deployment in a wide range of geometries including narrow, horizontal and highly deviated wells.
The COI, which joins the Company's established Compact suite of formation evaluation measurement tools, features eight pads with 72 total measurement electrodes that provide optimum coverage. The images can be further enhanced through Weatherford Reveal 360™ image processing. Reveal 360 technology uses structural and textural information in the measured parts of the image to reconstruct any gaps between pads.
