Horizontal Well Planning from Simple Heel-Toe Locations
An onshore group had a busy rig schedule for their large drilling program and needed to find ways to save time when going from a prospect to a producing well. Specifically, the group was challenged with streamlining how to quickly turn prospective well locations drawn on a map, into viable well design plans for the drilling department.
A Relief Well Planning Case Study
In the Gulf of Mexico, a drilling trajectory needed adjusting due to a recent update to the reservoir model. Although the change to the trajectory was minor, the shift of the placement of the 14-inch and 11 7/8-inch casing shoes invalidated the previously designed relief well plans. With a fast-approaching deadline for drilling operations, the well planning team had little time to make a new relief well plan that could (1) achieve the objectives of the updated target plan, (2) meet industry-standard relief-well design constraints, and (3) be ready to send for permitting.
Regional Structural Geological Modeling Through Fault Data Correlation
Onshore projects often span extensive areas, and coarse, basin-wide models are used in activities such as assessing regional stress patterns and stratigraphic trends, as well as planning rig schedules.
Forward Seismic Modeling in a North Sea Reservoir
Improved, flexible and faster access to critical data is vital for fully informed decision making in today’s multidisciplinary asset development teams. It is also imperative to include the highest fidelity quantitative temporal data when building reservoir models to improve development plans and maximize returns on investment.

Reservoir Pressure Anomalies: Investigating Causes with CoViz 4D
In a California onshore field, with hundreds of closely-spaced production and injection wells, a horizontal production well was experiencing occasional dangerously high pressure and temperature spikes – leading to a serious health and safety issue.
