Improved Wellbore Placement
Our Bit Guidance System continuously monitors the drilling trajectory for deviations from the well plan as well as projects a path forward that will keep the well within the drilling window—all while minimizing high curvature sections that may reduce wellbore productivity.
Then, our Automation Sequencer ensures precise execution of the Bit Guidance System instructions. Our Survey Management solution reduces the uncertainty in relative wellbore positions which can cause the true lateral spacing to be hundreds of feet different than what is reported by the surveys. Lastly, our automated Geosteering technology analyzes the incoming logging data to make sure that the well plan is guided through the ideal target formation.
Maximize Frac Stages by Landing Curve at Target Vertical Section and Delivering a Cased Lateral to Planned Total Depth
Our Survey Management technology corrects surveys and provides data to the Bit Guidance System to calculate how we need to drill in order to meet the best outcome. The AutoSlide® technology then executes on those slides.
Geosteering continually collects data and makes geological interpretations and recommendations to plan drilling operations. Geological interpretations are conveyed to the operations geologist who approves the recommendation. Once approved, the recommendations are fed directly back into the Bit Guidance System to re-plan and create a new convergence plan based on the interpretation and a well plan shift.
Ultimately, delivering a tighter curve maximizes completable lateral length to potentially deliver 1-2 additional frac stages.
