The new WellPro process mass spectrometer from AMETEK Energy & Process Instrumentation provides near real-time quantitative analysis of C1 through C7 components of mud gas in less than 10 seconds. Along with C1 through C7 components, additional analysis components are available.
The WellPro's 19-inch wide, rack mount chassis is designed for deployment under harsh conditions. Its speed and accuracy of the WellPro make it well-suited for drilling fluid applications.
Data measurements now done by gas chromatography-flame ionization detector (GC-FID) top out at C5 and take upwards of a minute to process. As drilling speeds and directional capabilities improve, determination of pay quality in narrow zones has become more important.
At the heart of the WellPro mass spectrometer is a field-proven AMETEK quadrupole mass filter, with excellent stability, sensitivity and resolution across the whole mass range. Proprietary software provides for easy set-up and operation and includes advanced alarm and automation capabilities.
The accuracy of the WellPro is maintained by using a small gas cylinder to verify the instrument's performance. Recalibration, if required, is completely automatic. Autocalibration maintains the performance and accuracy of the system, while its self-diagnostic features and modular design ensures ease of maintenance.
Transferring data from the WellPro is easy and fast. Modbus and Open Platform Communications (OPC) are standard with the instrument, along with the Wellsite Information Transfer Specification (WITS) communications protocol
Introducing the new FLIR GFx320 Intrinsically Safe Optical Gas Imaging Camera for the oil and gas industry. This camera’s Intrinsically Safe designation means it’s certified for use in potentially explosive atmospheres. This is a critical feature, as it can allow workers to safely enter more areas to scan for fugitive hydrocarbon emissions.
The GFx320 quickly detects and visualizes invisible hydrocarbon leaks, such as methane, and common volatile organic compounds (VOCs) at oil and natural gas facilities. Instead of trying to survey for leaks from afar – outside hazardous areas – workers can assess potential risks and, once the area is deemed safe, enter with the camera to continue their scans.
The GFx320 packs FLIR’s outstanding gas visualization technology in a camera that’s independently certified as safe for use in Class I Div II/Zone 2 hazardous areas. It is calibrated to measure temperature, which can be used to increase thermal contrast and make gases easier to see against the background scene.
The camera is verified to meet sensitivity standards defined in the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPEA) OOOOa methane rule, and it tags each recording with GPS data – meeting additional regulatory requirements for reporting.
The FLIR GFx320 is now available worldwide through established FLIR sales channels

Service company IKM Cleandrill reported on August 28, 2017, that the company signed a contract to be brought on-board the Absheron Project in the Caspian Sea.
As part of the deal, the company will help improve the project’s riserless mud circulating system services.
The contract will include the installation of IKM’s MRR500 mud recovery system onto a new semisubmersible drill rig, and provision of subsea drilling fluid pumping services as part of Absheron Project’s drilling campaign in Azerbaijan.
The agreement was struck with Total E&P Aabsheron BV on behalf of Jocap.
The requirement for new technology is due to the deep water conditions and the high mud weights of the project.
Tom Hasler, managing director of IKM Cleandrill, said: «This contract’s award represents a significant win for IKM Cleandrill. Total undertook a detailed evaluation of the MRR500XL system as part of the bidding process, and our technical department has once again re-set the benchmark for mud recovery technology to meet their requirements.»
«Moving into the Caspian region is strategically important for the company and consolidates our position as the leading global mud recovery provider. We look forward to providing excellent service for Absheron Project», Hasler said.
