OIL & PETROL X-RAY SYSTEMS

Tailored solutions for petrophysical research: we design and manufacture advanced oil and petrol X-ray systems for real-time imaging of dynamic processes. The application of X-ray technology is e.g. for enhanced oil recovery studies, core analysis, permeability measurement and multiphase flow research.

InnospeXion supplies unique, tailored, and beyond the state of the art oil and petrol X-ray systems for petrophysical research, primarily in two different fields: (1) systems for advanced core flow analysis (reservoir studies) and (2) systems for multiphase flow visualization and monitoring in large scale pipe flow models.

The InnospeXion oil and petrol X-ray technology finds applications for core flow analysis, and for high-speed flow imaging in large pipe spool test rigs. In both cases, the objective is Three Phase Flow Quantification, in R&D laboratories and full-scale test rigs.

The X-ray technology suitable for oil & petrol reservoir modeling as well as for exploration research must provide a high imaging speed, a very high contrast to discriminate the constituents, and a high resolution. Climate control of the entire system is needed in order to cope with high (120 deg C) oven temperatures in the lab, and with rough weather conditions in outdoor spool rig applications.

MAIN FEATURES

  • X-ray Imaging AND flow measurement
  • Proven, robust, fast X-ray technology
  • Tailored to R&D specs
  • Multi-spectral imaging
  • 0.1 mm resolution limit

InnospeXion's X-ray solutions involve the most sensitive and fast technology in order to quantify details invisible by other (X-ray) technologies. Our customers are world leading petroleum research institutions and the results obtained with our oil and petrol X-ray systems have important economic and environmental benefits.

Our oil and petrol X-ray systems are provided with local and/or remote control,
and with data acquisition and processing software in agreement with customers specifications.
Initial FAT is accomplished at InnospeXion premises, followed by SAT following the on-site installation.
APEX and other conformity requirements may be implemented according to request.

APPLICATION AREAS

InnospeXion is a developer and producer of advanced core analysis X-ray systems  for three-phase flow measurement and modeling of rock slabs or drill core samples for petrophysical research. The core analysis X-ray technology is based on further development of our X-ray technology used in 24/7 applications, in the food and continuous process control. It is therefore characterized by being robust, with fast scanning speed, effective in the quantification task, and competitively priced.

X-ray systems used for multiphase flow quantification must have a high imaging speed, a very high contrast to discriminate the constituents, and a high resolution. InnospeXion has worked for many years with technologies that meet these demands and implemented this into robust, reliable and cost-effective inspection systems for a variety of applications.

OIL & PETROL EXPLORATION
CASE STUDY

InnospeXion designs and manufactures advanced X-ray systems for real-time imaging of dynamic processes at conditions where they otherwise cannot be monitored. The application of X-ray technology for petrophysical research is e.g. for enhanced oil recovery studies, core analysis, permeability measurement and multi-phase flow research.
