When Oil is Struck, Cambridge Viscosity Helps Schlumberger-DBR Technology Analyze It - Page 3
Aside from the hardware aspect of the solution, the VISCOlab PVT Recirculating Bath comes with software that is powerful yet easy to use. The intuitive graphical user interface enables operators to easily set temperatures and other parameters, providing the real-time monitoring and control capabilities they need. The software also includes critical temperature- and pressure-correction equations to ensure more accurate data. The sensor and piston can distort with changes in temperature and pressure, so being able to automatically apply temperature-compensated viscosity (TCV) and pressure-compensated viscosity (PCV) is an important innovation.
Over the course of the 15-year relationship, DRB has undergone many changes; but its focus has stayed the same and its reliance on and loyalty towards Cambridge Viscosity have remained consistent throughout. Today, approximately 25 Cambridge Viscosity systems are used by DBR and other Schlumberger divisions.
“Our customers like the units because they’re compact enough to be taken out to the field easily,” says Kalra. “But mostly they like them because they’re efficient and accurate. Anything less would mean a loss of money and our reputation, so we have a lot invested in the Cambridge Viscosity systems.”
