Formation Pressure Tester Tool


The Formation Pressure Tester instrument is designed to determine formation pressures and to provide fluid samples. The Tester tool extends its snorkel and presses it firmly against the borehole wall.

During one run, it can record an unlimited number of pressure tests and it can also collect a 2.6-gallon fluid sample, if it is equipped with the corresponding sample chamber


Formation Tester tool determines formation pressure and provides fluid samples, which can be used to predict production capabilities in zones of interest. Quartz technology provides a precise, high-resolution pressure gradient log.

The snorkel can be placed precisely on depth using the GR measurement from the Telemetry sub for correlation. Optionally, a Caliper instrument can be included in the string for positioning of the pad in an engaged borehole section.
