Avoid kicks and maximise drilling efficiency with highly precise measurement data.

Making an Impact Across the Globe

Measurement of drilling fluids is a complicated and variable task. A real-time measurement is paramount to well integrity. The Red Meter successfully interrogates fluids going to and coming from the well in addition to providing a relationship analysis between the two lines. Accurately measuring where other devices have failed because of fluctuations and difficult to measure variables help crews avoid kicks and maximise drilling efficiency.

When extracting fossil fuels, the cementing column is one of the most critical aspects of the process. Often, the cement blend becomes unbalanced causing it leave weak spots or cracks within the cement. Our non-nuclear density meter provides a precise, real-time, monitoring system to detect errors or fluctuation in the cement density. With this data, errors can be corrected before the cement is mixed with water or goes down-hole, thereby becoming a solution before there becomes a problem.
