Log a full wireline measurement suite beyond gravitational descent.
Horizontal wellbore environments are difficult to cost-effectively log for obtaining critical information on the formation and fracture heterogeneity to determine reservoir quality (RQ), which has a significant influence on well productivity.
ThruBit FMI through-the-bit formation microimager is cost-effectively and reliably deployed through the bit in geometrically complex and unstable wells by using the unique conveyance platform of ThruBit through-the-bit logging services. A single run of the 21/8-in-diameter ThruBit FMI microimager provides high-resolution images that enable accurate interpretation and characterization of structural, stratigraphic, and geomechanical considerations in accounting for reservoir anisotropy in the well completion.
High-definition formation images efficiently obtained with the ThruBit FMI microimager were used to differentiate healed from open continuous fractures intersecting the wellbore and target the stress-enhanced larger-aperture fractures in crafting a successful geoengineered completion strategy.

Efficiently conducting image logging for characterizing natural fractures and the stress regime made it possible for an operator to geoengineer its completion strategy and overcome inconsistent inflow performance by multistage lateral completions.
