Formation pressure testing similarly requires fluid withdrawal.The fluid extraction is typically conducted with a probe module that includes a packer,  telescoping backup pistons, and a flowline. The pistons extend the probe and packer assembly against the borehole wall to provide a sealed fluid path from the reservoir  to the flowline. The governing principle behind flowing any fluid from a reservoir for formation testing is Darcy’s law, in which flow ( q ) is a function of permeability ( k  ), drawdown pressure ( dp ), surface area open  to flow (  A ), fluid viscosity (  μ ), and the length (  L ) over which the drawdown is applied. Flow from the formation to a conventional formation tester is narrowed to the intake of the single probe, not from the entire circumference of the borehole wall. A revolution in sampling and pressure-testing technology The self-sealing Saturn* 3D radial probe enables true 3D circumferential flow in the formation around the borehole, significantly reducing the time needed  to obtain representative formation fluids and extend fluid sampling and downhole fluid analysis (DFA) to what were previously challenging environments: - low-permeability formations- heavy oil- near-critical fluids - unconsolidated formations - rugose boreholes.The low storage volume of the Saturn probe’s design not only facilitates fluid sampling and DFA but also the efficient performance of complete pressure surveys in extremely low-permeability formations.
