REDOX IDENTIFICATION TECHNOLOGY -- A DIRECT LOCATION TECHNIQUE
Reed Tompkins Eschaton Exploration Spring, Tex. Recently a new technology has been developed whereby the direct detection of oil reservoirs generated by reduction-oxidation (redox) cells can be made. This technique is described as redox identification technology (RIT). The oil related reduction-oxidation cell was first popularized by Sylvain J. Pirson, a Schlumberger engineer who developed the redox cell concepts from SP base line shifts relative to production zones.
