Enables proactive decision-making rather than reactive
Operators can now drill ahead with confidence and reduce drilling uncertainties in real time. Applications include ahead-of-the-bit detection of formation features with potential pressure differentials for integration in a standard pore pressure prediction workflow. Penetrating a high-pressure reservoir might result in stuck pipes, lost circulation, and other potential wellbore instability issues.
IriSphere service provides drillers with real-time mud properties management and enables optimized casing design and contingencies planning. Unlike the current geostopping technology available in the industry, IriSphere service can differentiate between a thin high-resistivity stringer and a target reservoir. Consequently, premature casing seating or coring location is avoided.
