WellDog Launches Carbon Services Division
WellDog has established a carbon services division focused on carbon sequestration monitoring, verification and accounting. The companyâ€™s product portfolio includes the worldâ€™s only technical service capable of practical, direct measurement of carbon dioxide or methane injected in underground depleted oil and gas and saline formations.
According to WellDog, the new division is in response to increased interest in downhole reservoir characterization and monitoring technologies to plan, monitor and audit long-term carbon sequestration efforts in a variety of environments.
The company has also formed a partnership with the University of Queensland. Funded by a one-year grant from the Australian National Low Emissions Coal Research & Development, the partnership aims to expand the application of WellDogâ€™s reservoir Raman spectroscopy technology to track trace gases that may be sequestered alongside carbon dioxide.
In 2010, the company demonstrated how its reservoir Raman spectroscopy technology could monitor carbon dioxide sequestered in New Mexicoâ€™s Pump Canyon. WellDog has also used the Raman technology to conduct a variety of studies on naturally occurring carbon dioxide in coals and has used its complementary flow testing technologies to measure the permeability and flow characteristics of underground formations.
