Water channeling through conductive fractures and karsts is evident when mapped by PeriScope Edge service. MicroScope HD service combined with Periscope Edge service provided clear reservoir images, resulting in real-time quantitative evaluation of reservoir parameters for optimal completion design.
Background

Karsts, fractures, and faults can significantly impact drilling by causing lost circulation and reducing production performance. The MicroScope HD high-definition resistivity imaging-while-drilling service combined with the PeriScope Edge multilayer mapping-while-drilling service can map with high resolution around the borehole to several layers in more than 20 ft of borehole.
