Accurate Well Placement

Placing wells in challenging shale environments

Drilling long laterals for thousands of feet necessitates exact adjustments to successfully drill within the target shale layers. Accomplishing accurate well placement requires real-time data to maintain contact with the intended reservoir, identify and avoid hazards, and improve drilling efficiency.

Adjusting well trajectory in real time

Geosteering allows operators to make constant adjustments to the well trajectory in real time throughout drilling operations. With precise directional control, geosteering leads to more accurate well placement and enhanced production in heterogeneous shale.

Evaluating formation conditions constantly

Shale reservoir rock quality can be highly variable within relatively narrow vertical and horizontal sections. Evaluating shale formations while drilling with LWD reduces risk and improves efficiency. Acquisition, interpretation, and integration of real-time downhole measurements expedite completion design.
