Oilfield Review Video: Steering Wells Through Complex Reservoirs

The GeoSphere reservoir mapping-while-drilling service helps bridge the gap between surface seismic data used to plan the reservoir development and logging data used to steer and evaluate the wellbore. This service uses deep-reading, directional electromagnetic measurements to detect fluid contacts and multiple formation boundaries more than 100 ft from the wellbore. These reservoir-scale measurements provide timely data that operators need update the reservoir model in real time, guiding geosteering decisions. Well placement teams are using GeoSphere service to accurately land wells, avoid unplanned exits from the reservoir, map multiple formation layers, develop interpretations of reservoir structure and reduce drilling risk while decreasing the need for pilot holes.
