The SureCore is a real – time coring indication system that informs the operator if the core is jammed, milling, washing or still coring throughout a coring operation. The system uses MWD technology inside a core barrel and can be run with Halliburton, BHI, NOV and CorPro coring systems.
The tool not only lets the operator know if the core is jammed or not, it also records the data during coring and whilst tripping. This information is crucial as it can help eliminate lost core data and provide a better understanding of what occurred during a coring operation. The data download will identify if core was lost while pulling out of hole so depths can be adjusted accordingly.
Coring has been very much dependent on the experience of the coring engineer in interpreting surface data. However even the most experienced engineer can make mistakes when picking or missing a jam off. The SureCore will eliminate indecision and uncertainty during coring and therefore can save a considerable amount of lost time, lost core data or damaged core.
Some of the comments and feedback we receive from drilling, geology and coring people are:
Specialised Oilfield Services own all the SureCore and CLR technology patents outright.
