Advances in downhole instrumentation, telemetry and data processing are bringing real-time borehole visualization closer to the field. On-site drilling and petrophysical teams make fast, accurate operational decisions based on intuitive visual interpretations of the downhole reservoir environment. Wellbore construction and placement are optimized for maximum efficiency. This article reviews the basic technology of LWD imaging tools and techniques, and explores examples of how operators are using real-time imaging.
