Our most compact borehole survey technology is designed to fit into the smallest of tools by using a compact electronics package. The technology has undergone extensive thermal cycle and soak testing up to 185˚C to ensure the unit’s performance is accurate, stable and reliable. Test data indicates at least a three-fold reduction in total magnetic field spread and bias change over time. For our customers,this means an increase of 2X in both life and mean time between calibrations, which translates directly to lower cost of ownership.
Superior performance in harsh environments
GE Oil & Gas orientation modules are designed for efficient operation in a compact, rugged chassis. By providing accurate and stable survey measurements, with minimal downhole power consumption, the module has helped customers lower operational costs associated with downhole batteries, and enabled the horizontal drilling techniques required for unconventional resource development.
Combining robust packaging with hightemperature electronics, our orientation modules are calibrated to deliver accurate survey data over a wide operating temperature range from -20˚C to 175˚C (-4˚F to 347˚F), with downhole vibration up to 20 grms.
Engineered, calibrated, and tested for reliability
Our orientation modules incorporate the operational experience gained from the design and manufacture of almost 30,000 units over 30 years. This experience and the associated proprietary manufacturing and processing techniques that have evolved from it, have resulted in modules that are regarded by many as the industry’s gold standard for borehole magnetic surveys. GE Oil & Gas’ orientation module sensor assemblies provide accurate directional data and information for real-time steering decisions.
