DWL Advanced Gas Technology

Baseline 8800A Flame Ionization for Total Gas
This gas measurement system provides accurate, reliable hydrocarbon continuous and automated gas analysis over a broad range of concentrations. Learn more.

Baseline 8900 Flame Ionization for Chromatography
This gas measurement combines the selectivity of gas chromatography and hydrocarbon selectivity of a flame ionization detector to provide fast analysis of C1 - C7. Learn more.

QGM Gas Trap
The Quantitative Gas measurement (QGM) system provides accurate and reliable gas-in-mud measurements while drilling. This system runs at a constant 1725 RPMs and is powered by an electric motor (intrinsically safe) allowing for consistent measurement. Learn more.

DWL Standard Gas Technology

Hot Wire and TC Total Gas System
Total combustible hydrocarbon, monitoring system. This system uses two detectors, each of which has its own amplifier and can be zeroed with no interaction with the other. This equipment is calibrated every 24 hours by the logging engineer.

Hot Wire Automatic Chromatograph
This gas chromatograph hydrocarbon identification system will detect the amounts of methane, ethane, propane, iso-butane and normal butane. This equipment is calibrated every 24 hours by the logging engineer.

Standard Gas Trap
This gas measurement system relies on rig air pressure (typically 1600 RPMs) to provide accurate gas-in-mud measurements while drilling.

DWL Additional Gas Technology

H2S Gas Detection
DWL uses Detcon Model 440-N4X four channel gas detection alarm and control system housed in a weather proof enclosure for H2S gas detection.

CO2 Gas Detection
DWL uses Vaisala GMT220 Series Carbon Dioxide Transmitters to detect carbon dioxide. This equipment is dust- and waterproof to IP65 standards.

Gas Referencing ™
Gas Referencing ™ is a proprietary standard for measuring and analyzing formation gas in the drilling fluid. A non-indigenous gas such as propylene is injected into the drilling fluid to create a Reference Gas with a known concentration. Upon returning to the surface, the Reference is used to: normalize gas measurements, monitor measurement system performance and measure lag. Learn more.
