COSL, producer of Thru-Casing Density Logging Technology

Thru-Casing Density Logging employs the Monte Carlo method to calculate reservoir density behind casing. It counters casing and cement effects through corrections, simultaneous density calculation  and cement thickness adjustments. This innovative technology reduces operational risks, saves time and enhances logging efficiency in challenging well conditions.

PETRONAS / Worley, producer of Pseudo Dry Gas

PDG is a series of subsea, inline, piggable devices that enable the economic development of gas discoveries at step-out distances of up to 300 km, almost double what can be achieved with conventional approaches. PDG technology separate liquid and gas from the well, leading to efficient single-phase gas and liquid flow along the pipelines. Phase segregated flow remove the need for topside processing and greatly lower gas compression and production chemicals requirement leading to lower CAPEX, OPEX, and CO2 emission.
