9½-inch ALD™ Azimuthal Lithodensity Logging-While-Drilling (LWD) Service

Reduce Well Construction Costs in Deepwater Environments

Drilling large-diameter borehole sizes in deepwater environments require accurate logging-while-drilling (LWD) density measurements to understand the reservoir’s geological structure. At Halliburton, we can help you gain greater insight into your reservoir, and use this data to help you make informed drilling decisions and reduce well construction costs.

Award-winning LWD Drilling Solution for the Gulf of Mexico

The 9-½-inch ALD™ Azimuthal Lithodensity service from Halliburton is the industry’s first and only service that delivers high-quality azimuthal density and ultrasonic caliper measurements in real-time for deepwater boreholes ranging from 14-½ inches to 17-½ inches. Compliant with U.S. Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) regulations, the service helps you enhance reservoir understanding and reduce well costs by minimizing post-drilling formation evaluation runs.

Enhance Reservoir Understanding with High-Quality Logs

Request Info Button

The high-quality log images obtained from our 9-½-inch ALD service are especially suited when drilling through salt layers, where seismic data is often unclear, leading to geological uncertainty. By knowing the geological features of your reservoir, you’ll be able to enhance reservoir understanding and keep your well on target.

Let us help you maximize the value of your deepwater asset every step of the way.
