Serving the petroleum industry worldwide ... a leader in formation testing, rheology, MWD telemetry and electromagnetics.
What StrataMagnetic Software, LLC is about ...
We specialize in formation testing, rheology, MWD telemetry, electromagnetic analysis and reservoir engineering, and develop easy-to-use but powerful mathematical models for exploration and production. Our methods are rigorous, carefully validated and documented, and replace the often inaccurate "me too" products offered by competitors.
Can't wait ... tell me more right now!

StrataMagnetic Software, LLC, is completely open about its technology. We'll answer all of your questions, e.g., theory, numerical modeling, lab and field validation, and software architecture, in all the detail you want.
And we'll address competitor strengths and limitations honestly. We've published papers, won patents, written books, developed test facilities and consulted with leading companies worldwide in multiple disciplines.
In particular ...
These build upon work described in the books Borehole Flow Modeling in Horizontal, Deviated and Vertical Wells (Gulf Publishing, 1992) and Computational Rheology for Pipeline and Annular Flow (Elsevier, 2001).
Importantly, significant improvements to all are now available to the petroleum community, funded by a key half-million dollar award from the United States Department of Energy during 2010-2011.

An early leader in wind tunnel analysis for MWD pulser design, Mr. Chin honed his skills at Schlumberger as Supervisor, MWD, patenting its non-jamming "stable-open, rotor downstream" siren, and later, as Manager, MWD FasTalk at Halliburton, patented innovative methods like signal enhancement by constructive interference and wave-equation-based multiple transducer signal processing.
Mr. Chin pioneered wind tunnel usage at Schlumberger, went on to design short and long wind tunnel systems at Hallibuton, and more recently, led the overall R&D effort for high-data-rate MWD at China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) in Beijing.
Write today for your free AADE paper and Powerpoint describing the CNPC system. And right now, we're working with leading service companies to enhance their MWD products, increase low data rates and reduce high levels of erosion ... and importantly, at cost and time efficiencies they never thought possible!
Whether you're an old hand at MWD or a newcomer breaking into this fast-paced arena, you need to talk to StrataMagnetic Software, LLC today. Arrange a "must see" presentation loaded with case studies, different downhole tools and hardware prototypes, numerous photographs and interesting movies today!
So what does one do for an encore? In 2005, we won two Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grants from the United States Department of Energy to extend our already powerful models. That's two out of approximately two hundred awards for all areas in energy research.
Existing commercial models are notably inaccurate ... what's more, they're expensive and proprietary. Order our formation testing book for the complete story ... and better, use our state-of-the-art simulators to uncover formation evaluation information our competitors can't.
A modeling nightmare ... but yet, we published the first paper on the subject in China's Well Logging Technology journal back in 2000. The model, rigorous, fast and stable, ideally simulates modern triaxial induction tools in their grand complexity, and has been licensed to Geoservices, COSL and others.
Write for our e/m publications today and learn more about our innovative math modeling and software platforms. As usual, we're open about our methods, and we'll work with you to develop the best simulators possible for tool design and interpretation.
Company updates ...
In 2009, the United States Department of Energy awarded us, through competitive bidding, a key half-million dollar contract for research and software development supporting "Managed Pressure Drilling." Read about our important breakthroughs on this website and how you can obtain our free software modeling system.
Now, whose dual probe tool is that below?
And now, a major modeling breakthrough for cementing applications ... get ready! Cement displaces mud during cementing jobs, hopefully. The entire non-Newtonian transient flow process from drillpipe to highly eccentric annulus has been modeled for multiphase mixtures, for general pumping schedules, in the presence of axially reciprocating and rotating casing!.
Important details like bypassed mixing zones, and transition thicknesses and formation times, can be predicted, using high resolution "boundary-conforming, curvilinear mesh systems" in our advanced finite difference methods. Our new DOE-funded models are faster and more accurate than the developer's prior models. Read about the new methods in four papers presented at the 2011 AADE annual conference in Houston ... write for complimentary reprints today!
Arrange your own in-house presentation now ... numerous "before and after" case studies, multiple hardware classes, metal and wood prototypes, and more photos and movies than you can imagine! We'll discuss your problems, design your wind tunnels and even help with your test plan.
Put the two together, "tweak" the system with inspiration, and you'll get 10 "real" bits/sec in deep wells without data compression ... a "game changing" proposition! And what's more ... our wave filters can remove desurger reflections and mudpump signatures from the noisiest signals ... we've processed information from S/N < 10% data streams.
CNPC's continuous wave, mud pulse "siren" prototype ...
Exciting news, for sure ... read about it in this website! Better off, write for our complimentary 2011 AADE paper today.
