Industry Article: LWD Data Allow Evaluation of Producible Zones Offshore Brazil

Advanced formation evaluation measurements lead to improved understanding of mineralogy and fluid composition in carbonate reservoirs

LWD Data Allow Evaluation of Producible Zones Offshore Brazil
Publication: E&P
Publication Date: 05/01/2013

While drilling a complex carbonate reservoir in the Campos basin, an operator required an LWD analysis to identify producible zones. An 8 1/2-in. high-angle borehole was drilled with synthetic oil-based mud using a bottomhole assembly that included a rotary steerable system and multifunction and magnetic resonance LWD services. All data were streamed in real time to enable complete formation evaluation while drilling.
