Enhancing Borehole Data Analysis Through Multi-Dataset Visualization

Borehole data obtained during a drilling process can greatly improve the understanding of evolving reservoir characteristics and conditions. Drilling logs and sensor data such as gamma ray, resistivity, and dipmeter can provide engineers with a wealth of additional geologic detail associated with a borehole. When newly-acquired borehole datasets are combined with existing reservoir data, then…

Well-Collision Avoidance: Mitigating Risk in Mature Field Development

When developing well-collision avoidance strategies, petroleum professionals should rely on data integration and visualization to aid in well planning. Enhanced visualization gives engineers the ability to see more of the subsurface and provides them with additional opportunities to prevent drilling into danger zones or colliding with established wells. There are two software tools that asset…

The Use of Tracers in Oil and Gas Industry for Better Reservoir Surveillance

Tracer technology for the oil and gas industry has become an increasingly important tool for reservoir surveying and monitoring. Tracers can help portray reservoir characteristics more clearly, depict fluid pathways, reveal communication—planned or unexpected—between wells, and provide better estimates of remaining oil saturation. Tracer technology in oil and gas has become indispensable for showing fluid…

How Leveraging a Digital Oilfield Leads to Improved Operations

A mechanical issue in a well is a common occurrence, but issues found in more than one well could indicate a larger problem within the reservoir. To avoid reservoir dilemmas that can hamper well-placement strategies and incur long-term costs, analysts need a complete visual of the reservoir. To prevent operational stalls, analysts also need accessible…
