Resistivity imaging service for fracture identification

High-resolution LWD images delivered in real time identify formation structure and geological features, such as fractures, enabling steering to the best place—faster.

The geoVISION imaging-while-drilling service can be configured to make up to five resistivity measurements. Three azimuthally-focused button electrodes offer multiple depths of investigation to permit quantification of invasion profiles. An integral cylindrical electrode delivers high-resolution lateral resistivity. At-bit resistivity measurements allow real-time coring and casing point selection in both conductive and resistive mud environments. The service is ideal for a number of challenging environments, including shale gas.
