Single-Run "Mega-Combo" LWD/MWD Improves Formation Evaluation Offshore Angola

In a deepwater deviated well offshore Angola, BP and its partners, Sonangol E.P., Sonangol P&P, Statoil Angola A.S., Marathon Oil and Sonangol Sinopec International (SSI), have successfully acquired the world’s largest-ever suite of measurement-while-drilling (MWD) data in a single bottomhole assembly (BHA). Combining seven different services, the BHA included a rotary steerable system (RSS), measurement and telemetry service, logging-while-drilling (LWD) magnetic resonance service, multifunction petrophysics platform, formation pressure service, and sonic and seismic services. Measurements from these services were integrated and used for real-time drilling parameter optimization and formation evaluation. These data were shared with experts located remotely around the world, monitoring the progress of the well and supporting critical decisions.
