In exploration, it’s important to adapt the drilling method to the petrology involved. At Malvern Panalytical, we work with various industry leaders to develop solutions to cope with changing petrology.
Including X-ray diffractometers to analyze drill cuttings and particle sizing solutions to optimize drill-mud consistency, the insights provided by these solutions enable producers to optimize their well developments accordingly.
Solutions for exploration
During production both offshore and onshore facilities are vulnerable to scaling from the (sea)water injections. Therefore the need to carry out regular descaling is required to ensure continued production.
This requires an understanding of the mineralogy of scaling itself, and process water compositions such as ion-concentrations of barium and calcium and mineralogy. By measuring these parameters, our analyzers help manufacturers minimize scaling-related downtime.
Solutions for production
We understand your market value of crude oil, is largely determined by the sulfur concentration and API gravity. With our elemental analysis solutions sulfur can be measured easily, directly on offshore and onshore assets.
Our unique software corrects for API gravity, offering increased accuracy for sulfur content. This enables you, as producers, to comply with increasingly stringent governmental regulations to help reduce your environmental impact.
