Exploration beneath Salt

The prospectivity of stratigraphically younger sediments beneath a salt layer has held oil and gas explorationists' interest for years. The target of imaging technology has been to enhance the salt-sediment interface to efficiently optimise drilling in subsalt and presalt plays.

Inside the Rock

For the first time, geoscientists can produce 3D images of rock features at a wide range of scales - from millimetre through micron and down to nanometre size - and peer into the rock’s porous structure, seeing what is there and how it can be produced most effectively.

Real-Time Data = Proactive Field Decisions

Recent developments in permanent downhole monitoring provide accurate and stable measurements even in extreme high pressure/high temperature reservoir conditions. The integration of multiple measurements as they happen allows operators to make field decisions for production and reservoir management.

Petrophysics in High Angle and Horizontal Wells

The benefits of directional drilling are widely known – increased reservoir exposure and greater production. However, the practice can pose formation evaluation challenges in high angle and horizontal wells, making traditional petrophysical interpretation techniques harder to apply because of geometric effects on the data. Modern wellbore software can provide a viable solution.
