• WHY GEOSTEERING?

Posted in: Wellsite Geology              Written by: Rob Harvey On: April 19,2018

Remote Geosteering is the planned directional control of a wellbore based on the downhole geological measurements rather than three-dimensional targets in an attempt to keep a directional wellbore within a specific pay zone.  The vast majority of conventional plays still rely on drill cuttings sample observation to determine the best quality reservoir and the optimal wellpath.  However, in many unconventional plays the cuttings are secondary to petrophysical measurements and drilling efficiency.

How Remote Geosteering Cuts Costs

Since 2006 Belloy geologists have been involved in 24/7 real-time remote geosteering and supervision of hundreds of horizontal wells. In certain applications, remote geosteering has been proven to reduce drilling time, cut drilling costs, eliminate sidetracks and decrease wellbore length out of pay zone, and therefore maximize total hydrocarbon recovery.  Using real-time MWD data and the latest software technology our geologists monitor and make real-time decisions to effectively steer the bit for optimal wellbore placement.  Our geosteering experience includes but is not limited to the Clearwater, McMurray, Duvernay, Montney, Horn River/Muskwa and Bakken formations.

How Belloy Can Help

At Belloy, we promote the true value of a veteran wellsite geologist having an active role in the geological steering of directional and horizontal wells. This has been a fact for many years and all of our top associates have solid experience in supervising the geological and directional aspects of deviated and horizontal wells. It is imperative to use all data available (regional setting, stratigraphy, samples, ROP, Gas, GR, offsetting well info, petrophysical and petrological information) in conjunction with the proposed directional plan to adjust on the fly for the best possible placement and resulting production. It has been proven that placement in the best rock consistently impacts production numbers with positive results.

With multi-well and multi-rig projects, Belloy has the experience, the associates, and the access to the most appropriate software for the job. The right wellsite geology software in the hands of an area experienced wellsite geologist greatly benefits the end results and objectives of the project.
