Metrolog Introduces iScope for Real-time Monitoring of Well Testing Operations

Metrolog's iScope downhole monitoring system provides fast, efficient and frequent retrieval of pressure and temperature data during well testing operations.

May 6, 2014

Sercel announced today that its subsidiary Metrolog has launched iScope, an industry-first downhole monitoring system for fast, efficient and frequent retrieval of pressure and temperature data during well testing operations. By deploying iScope, reservoir and well testing engineers can access and obtain in real time a conclusive interpretation of well pressure build-up data in order to optimize the time and capital outlay required for the well testing phase.

Integrating Metrolog’s widely proven iQuartz pressure and temperature memory gauges, iScope is deployed as a single element of a standard Drill Stem Test (DST). At any time, pressure and temperature data measured by the gauges can be sent via wireless technology to an iScope shuttle deployed from the well platform. This simple and cost-effective process enables easy and frequent data harvesting in order to monitor the well testing operation in real time.

Metrolog’s successful development of this highly innovative new downhole monitoring tool is a first for the integration of proven wireless data transmission capabilities into its downhole memory gauge technology. Metrolog’s market-leading downhole memory gauges are recognized by the international oil and gas industry for their superior data quality, long electronic lifespan in high temperature conditions and low electronic consumption.
