The steep prices of well upkeep can be intimidating for operators, especially when they don’t have a clear understanding of what is happening in the well. Geosteering and reservoir mapping technology is a helpful resource operators use, but with more complex wells, it’s necessary to invest in more complex technology.

In the SPE Tech Talk webinar “3D Reservoir Mapping-While-Drilling Service” on March 17, Mauro Viandante, geosteering and reservoir mapping domain champion at Schlumberger, explained the advantages of 3D mapping-while-drilling technologies over 2D technologies.

“We are adding a new dimension to the geosteering world,” Viandante said. “So we can now see in 3D and practical steering and make decisions that are now there are more advice, so we can really see the true geology of the field.”
