New 3D LWD technology provides detailed representation of subsurface structures

Halliburton has introduced 3D reservoir mapping, a new logging-while-drilling (LWD) capability that allows for more precise geosteering and accurate well placement. The 3D inversion is an advanced reservoir mapping process that reveals overlooked features such as faults, water zones, or local structure variations. It moves beyond layered reservoir models to full 3D visualization of the reservoir, said Jeff Grable, Director of Drilling Solutions. In this video with DC, Mr Grable explains how the technology differentiates itself from existing LWD technologies and how it leverages Halliburton’s EarthStar capabilities, as well as a recent North Sea deployment.
