The annual Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) Spotlight on New Technology Awards recognizes the latest and most advanced technologies that are leading the offshore exploration and production industry into the future.
The OTC Spotlight on New Technology Awards are based on the following key criteria: new, innovative, proven through full-scale application or successful prototype testing, of broad interest for the industry, and offers significant impact beyond existing technologies. Two Schlumberger technologies are named as 2015 OTC Spotlight on New Technology Award winners:
The GeoSphere reservoir mapping-while-drilling service reveals subsurface-bedding and fluid-contact details more than 100 ft [30 m] from the wellbore. This reservoir-scale view provides an unprecedented depth of investigation, enabling operators to optimize landing, maximize reservoir exposure, and refine field development plans using deep-directional measurements enabled by real-time interpretation solutions.
The Quanta Geo photorealistic reservoir geology service redefines imaging in oil-base mud to provide highly detailed, core-like microresistivity images that visually represent formation geology. These images enable confident visual identification of facies and determination of directional trends, thus reducing uncertainty in reservoir models, making better field development plans, and better quantifying project economics.
