The DQ1000™ Quadrapole Mass Spectrometer

The DQ1000™ is a portable quadrapole mass analyzer used on drilling wells that analyzes a range of petroleum species and other organic and inorganic compounds. The DQ1000™ delineates petroleum type, water saturation, fluid contacts and seals to a much greater extent than with conventional instrumentation.

Analysis

  • • C1-C10 petroleum species; standard gas ratios
  • • BTEX compounds and organic acids
  • • Inorganics including N2, Ar, O2, H2O, CO2, He, and H2
  • • Sulfur bearing compounds including SO2, COS, and CS2
  • • Formation gas vs. drilling mud and additives
  • • Bit generated gas
  • • 90 second cycle time; 10 ppb sensitivity
  • • Depth-based and time-based data

Applications

  • • Pay delineation; fluid contacts
  • • Petroleum type and quality
  • • Porosity, permeability
  • • BTEX halos (proximity to pay) and Sw
  • • Compartmentalization
  • • Seals, fractures and faults
  • • Sweet spots in unconventionals
  • • Practical data to improve well completions
