NEW ORLEANS – Schlumberger today at the 2013 SPE annual meeting has released its MicroScope HD high-definition imaging-while-drilling service.
MicroScope HD provides logging-while-drilling (LWD) imaging for reservoir description to enable detailed fracture characterization and completion optimization in conductive drilling fluids for all well types, including horizontal and highly deviated wells.
The MicroScope HD service enables detailed formation structural modeling to identify fracture orientation that contributes to production, says the company. An understanding of how formations are deposited is further enhanced through sedimentology analysis.
For fracture characterization, the MicroScope HD delivers dimensions of fractures, which provides geologists a better understanding of the fracture network.
MicroScope HD was field tested in reservoirs in the Middle East, Europe, and Africa, as well as unconventional reservoirs in North America.
