Advances in drilling, LWD and MWD technologies are helping operators produce and recover more hydrocarbons using increasingly complex well paths.  Equipped with more powerful computers and comprehensive, user-friendly modeling and stimulation software, the industry is now exploiting well-placement applications of modeling reservoirs during drilling.  This article examines modeling and stimulation while drilling, citing two examples in which the concepts are being tested.
