The GeoSphere reservoir mapping-while-drilling service expands on the bed-boundary mapping potential of conventional tools using an LWD system consisting of a transmitter and an array of multiple subs in the bottomhole assembly. These subs can detect deep, directional electromagnetic (EM) measurements more than 30 m (100 ft) from the wellbore to reveal subsurface-bedding and fluid-contact details at a significantly greater distance than conventional bed-boundary tools. The reservoir-scale view afforded by the GeoSphere service provides the operator with vastly improved depth of investigation that can optimize landing, improve geosteering to stay in zone and refine geological maps in real time.
