Fluid Calipers

A fluid caliper is a survey to pre-determine the volume requirements for any selective cementing job. We will give you accurate information, already computed into cubic feet, without lost rig time!

By running a fluid caliper we can give you the annular volume to:fluid-caliper-volume

  • Circulate cement behind casing
  • Circulate cement between stage collars
  • Circulate cement behind a liner
  • Cement to any desired height between the casing and wellbore

Other Applications

  • Circulate between 2 perfs
  • Squeeze Job
  • Plug and Whipstock
  • Pump Efficiency Testing
  • Mud Volume Calculations

Fluid Caliper Benefits

Benefits and Savings

  • No need for top-outs, 1-inching or remediation jobs
  •  Less Waste and haul off costs
  •  No wireline needed; also more accurate than 3 arm caliper
  •  Reduces risk of future wellbore problems due to insufficient volumes

No Lost Rig Time

We connect our flow meter to the vibrating hose at the discharge end of the mud pump.  We run our survey while you resume drilling, or while you circulate to condition the wellbore before running casing.  By eliminating the need for remediation jobs we can save you very valuable rig time.

Fluid Caliper vs. Open Hole Caliper

  • Unlike open hole calipers a fluid caliper can calculate any size washout
  • Fluid Calipers are less expensive and more accurate than open hole calipers
  • Fluid Calipers use minimal equipment and do not use any downhole tools, which reduces risk
