IADC group VP/publisher Mike Killalea sat down with Andy Hendricks, Drilling & Measurement president for Schlumberger, at the 2012 IADC/SPE Drilling Conference in San Diego on 7 March to discuss recently launched technologies. They include a high-resolution resistivity and imaging-while-drilling service that provides laterolog resistivity and full borehole images in conductive mud environments, as well as an at-bit inclination, gamma ray and imaging service that helps to optimize well placement in target zones through early bed boundary detection.
