How Real Time Drilling Data Analysis and Visualization Reduce Targeting Risks

Precision targeting helps maximize the recovery of hydrocarbons and incorporates a detailed understanding of geologic, geophysical, and petrophysical characteristics of the reservoir. With that information in hand, engineers and geoscientists can evaluate various...

Minimizing the Uncertainty of Well Trajectory Calculations

Positional uncertainty can be calculated anywhere along the wellpath, from tie-on to total depth.The greater the wellbore length the greater the degree of uncertainty in determining the actual trajectory location. A well-understood fact: Absolute accuracy is nearly...

Leveraging Python and Jupyter Notebooks for Oil and Gas Software Applications

With so many oil and gas software applications and so much multidisciplinary data to analyze, it can be cumbersome sharing vital information across disciplines. Many have found a solution in the collaboration of data visualization software, Python, and Jupyter...

Visualizing 3D Geothermal Exploration Data

The exploration of geothermal resources in the subsurface is challenging yet vital in the energy industry. There is huge potential in this largely untapped yet highly sustainable energy source. But there is also a great economic risk attached to it, starting at the early stage of its development.

Time-Lapse Seismic Reservoir Monitoring: Simple Integration of Visualized Data

The characteristics of a hydrocarbon reservoir are dynamic due to the petrophysical changes induced by production activities. Understanding these changes is essential in monitoring subsurface behavior and hence for optimizing recovery. Time-lapse seismic reservoir...

Oil and Gas Project Life Cycle: Why Software Agility Matters in Optimizing Field Analysis

In any oil and gas project life cycle significant amounts of data are collected throughout all phases—exploration, drilling, early development, infilling, maturity, and decommissioning. These data are vital to understanding and interpreting field characteristics...
Horizontal and Directional 3D Wellbore Visualization

Horizontal and Directional 3D Wellbore Visualization

With the increase in drilling activities on a global scale, the complexity of managing drilling operations in oil fields is becoming increasingly complex. The knowledge on the exact geospatial location of existing horizontal and directional wellbores has thus become...

Directional Well Planning Using Comprehensive 3D Visualization

Directional Well Planning Using Comprehensive 3D Visualization

Drilling of directional or horizontal wells has some notable complexities but is an effective way to reach targets that are difficult to access. Effective planning and analysis of the well in its geospatial position facilitate the minimization of risks associated with...
