Scanite delivers the future of digital well integrity monitoring

Scanite smart, acoustically-responsive cement technology is a game-changer for the unified digital oil field and monitoring of well integrity.

Management

Scanite technology adds remarkable risk-reduction value by directly allowing operators to manage critical formation issues across zones.

Insight

Provides invaluable well integrity data by returning accurate monitoring and detection of cement stresses and functions with existing acoustic logging tools.

Intelligence

Immediate analysis and notification of cement integrity and bonding, contamination of placed cement, and mechanical stresses on the well.

A Game Changer

Delivering critical well integrity information not possible until now.

Questions about Scanite

Below is a list of frequently asked questions to help you understand how this works.

1. How can we get started?

Oceanit is continuing to refine the Scanite production process scale-up while continuing work on metamaterial and detector optimization.  We are seeking partnerships and field trials. Get in touch if you are a O&G service company, operate existing wells or fields, are an acoustic tool developer, or have other target applications.

2. How does Scanite work?

When exposed to an acoustic frequency, Scanite exhibits a frequency response band gap behavior. Scanite is easily ‘read’ using existing acoustic logging tools. The band gap shift indicates mechanical loading level and possible absence of voids in the cement.

3. How can Scanite reduce reservoir uncertainty?

Enhanced detection of:

  • Zonal isolation – safety and efficiency
  • Channeling, micro-annulus, fractures
  • Lightweight and foam cements
  • Radial mapping, multi-annular inspection, P&A
  • Geo-mechanical and well mechanics information
  • Stress detection, pressure monitoring in cement

4. How does Scanite return well integrity intelligence?

Wireline logging tools:

  • Monopole
  • Dipole
  • Array
  • Scanning
  • Ultrasonic
  • Deep shear wave
  • EMAT

Other:

  • Fiber-optic DAS
  • Smart balls/probes

5. What are some key findings on Scanite?

  • Oceanit’s smart sensing cement provides improved cement-void contrast and stress detection.
  • acoustic band gap effect and load dependence were demonstrated in lab, sub-scale, and pilot field studies
  • Scanite has the potential to enhance well integrity diagnostics and provide insight into subsurface mechanics.
