Gas Oil Logging while Drilling (GOLD) is an advanced methodology and system for extraction, chromatographic and gas data analysis software for real-time formation evaluation. The complete GOLD system comprises 3 main modules, namely:
1 – Extraction System
2 – Chromatographic System
3 – GOLD data analysis system.
The complete GOLD system was designed to be completely modular, compatible with field activities and has been extensively validated in onshore and offshore operations around the world. It is the new concept of efficiency and accuracy in advanced gas analysis while drilling.
