Halliburton's EarthStar doubles depth of investigation of current LWD tech

Halliburton's EarthStar doubles depth of investigation of current LWD tech

Halliburton has released the EarthStar ultra-deep resistivity service, a logging-while-drilling technology that helps operators map reservoir and fluid boundaries over 200 feet (61 meters) from the wellbore, more than doubling the depth of investigation of current industry offerings. The service delivers a comprehensive reservoir view so operators can eliminate costly pilot holes and sidetracks, make informed geosteering decisions in real-time and better plan future field development.

Addressable smoke module for Det-Tronics fire- and gas-safety controller

Det-Tronics has introduced a new addressable smoke module (ASM) for the Eagle Quantum Premier (EQP) fire- and gas-safety controller. The new ASM extends the capability of the EQP and fulfills the requirement for marine-rated and certified Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 2-capable and Intrinsically Safe (IS) devices. This permits a single system to protect both hazardous and non-hazardous areas within a plant, minimizing the complexity and the number of fire and gas safety subsystems required.
