Measurements While Drilling (MWD) Services

Surveying and telemetry technologies and services for drilling optimization

Beyond direction and inclination data, formation evaluation, and more, MWD services play a key role in driving drilling optimization and efficiency by minimizing invisible lost time and ensuring no ROP limitation occurs while drilling because of data transmission rates.

Obtaining measurements while drilling enables operators to save time by acquiring formation evaluation and drilling optimization data, which also helps minimize doglegs. Fit-for-purpose MWD services provide continuous direction and inclination measurements to guide geosteering and provide data for survey management and development planning.

When combined with the Orion II data compression platform, Schlumberger MWD services can achieve up to 100-bps transmission rates.
