In order to generate an efficient steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) recovery mechanism, it is critical that the over-lying steam injection well be positioned over top of the under-lying producer well and that the inter-well distance between these two wellbores stay well within the target distance. Poor inter-well placement negatively impacts production rates, well life and ultimate recovery from these heavy oil reservoirs.
The key to achieving superior inter-well placement is active magnetic ranging. Halliburton, the pioneer and leader in SAGD directional drilling services, maximizes production rates, increases recovery factors, and extends asset longevity by:
Halliburton also helps mitigate risks before and during drilling operations by:
