Application of the Mass Spectrometry

  • Identification of Pay Delineation and Fluid Contacts.
  • Petroleum Type and Quality.
  • Porosity and Permeability.
  • BTEX halos and Sw.
  • Sweet spots in unconventional reservoirs.
  • Practical data to improve well completions.
  • Fractured Reservoirs.
  • Identification of bit burns.


  • Portable stand-alone direct quadripole mass spectrometry analysis of mud gas.
  • Routine chemical analysis of paraffins, naphthenes, aromatics, organic acids, volatile inorganic compounds and mud additives.
  • Assessment of petroleum type and quality, fluid contacts, proximity to pay, porosity, compartmentalization.
  • Requires only a continuous supply of gas from the extractor, a depth input and a more-or-less continuous supply of electricity.


  • Hydrocarbon detection range is C1-C10.
  • Inorganic detection of CO2, He, N2, O2 and Sulfur bearing compounds.
  • Standard Ratio analysis.
  • Cycle time of 90 sec and 1 ppb sensitivity.
  • Distinguish formation gas from mud additives gases.
  • Discriminate paraffins, naphthenes and aromatics (BTEX compounds).
