Well Placement Fundamentals

Well Placement Fundamentals provides a reference for petrotechnical experts involved in the real-time positioning of wellbores using LWD data and geological criteria. Chapters on geology, drilling, MWD, and LWD provide the fundamental cross-domain knowledge required for successful well placement operations. The three techniques of well placement—model-compare-update, real-time dip determination, and remote boundary detection—are detailed along with several case studies demonstrating the impact of appropriate application of well placement technology, process and petrotechnical expertise. The book is intended for distribution to clients to help explain our services and techniques, as precourse reading for students attending well placement training, and as a reference for those interested in productive drilling.
