English translation:inspired guess - tubage
Explanation:
Since you haven't asked, can we assume YOU know what BHS stands for?

Since *I* don't, I'm left wondering .... Since BHA is a standard abbreviation for "bottomhole assembly" in well drilling, and my dict. gives a "bottomhole sample-taker", and since your other questions concern testing and analysis of samples, it would appear, it might be something like that. Mind you, my dict. also gives "bottomhole scavenging" and "bottomhole stabilizer"

Wonder if "tbg" is an abbr. for "tubage", i.e. casing. Maybe they case the borehole with perforated casing at some point so that water etc. can flow into it. And then sample it.

My dict. certainly gives "tubage perforé" as "perforated casing"

And BHS does appear to mean "bottomhole sampler":

Using Positive Displacement (PD) or Single Phase (SP) Bottom Hole Sampler (BHS) Tools ... Finally, the well should be shut-in for twenty-four hours. ...
