Improvements in well steering along the lateral and downhole measurements, in particular, have been critical in optimizing well placement, an important key to economically maximizing production. Work on Anadarko Petroleum Corp. operated wells in the active Eagle Ford shale play of South Texas has demonstrated the benefits of using real-time formation evaluation along the lateral to optimize well placement and improve drilling efficiencies, thus improving shale oil and gas economics.
