Saudi Aramco, the world’s largest oil company, and Schlumberger, the leading oilfield services provider, are jointly developing new borehole gravity metering (BHGM) technology to measure the movement of deep-reservoir fluids at a precision scale never before attained.

“Saudi Aramco is actively pursuing the development of strategic technologies and tools for reservoir surveillance and monitoring,” says Amin H. Nasser, vice president of Petroleum Engineering and Development at Saudi Aramco.

“Collaboration with service providers is one of our approaches to develop next-generation tools that meet our needs.”

The development project will be executed by a technical team comprised of researchers from Saudi Aramco’s EXPEC ARC and Schlumberger, according to a report of Saudi Aramco’s web-site.
