Radian® Azimuthal Gamma Ray and Inclination Service
Geosteering solution in a compact, modular, cost-effective package for unconventional reservoirs
Real-time, high-quality gamma ray images and continuous borehole inclination measurements enable operators to make geosteering decisions with greater confidence. Our Radian® service reveals structural reservoir details not visible with conventional gamma ray sensors, helping you enhance reservoir understanding, maximize reservoir contact, and reduce well time.
With our Radian service, you’ll be able to:
Reduce uncertainty by easily distinguishing between formation layers with low gamma-ray contrast
Optimize wellbore placement by knowing your reservoir’s geological structure
Maximize reservoir contact by getting a clear view of the surrounding geology while in rotating or sliding mode
Decrease wellbore tortuosity by obtaining immediate feedback on steering decisions, making it easier to run casing and completion strings
The Radian service features a compact, modular tool design, which makes it compatible with all types of drilling equipment, including high-torque motors and rotary steerable systems. For maximum flexibility, it can be run either by itself or in combination with all Sperry Drilling MWD/LWD systems. The optional built-in inclinometer provides immediate feedback on well trajectory changes, allowing for fine positional control. It's also SOLAR® (175°C / 347°F) rated for high-temperature applications.
If you’re looking to gain greater reservoir insight and make more informed geosteering and formation evaluation decisions, the Radian service provides you with the versatility in one cost-effective package. Let’s work together to maximize the value of your unconventional asset.
An operator in North Dakota’s Middle Bakken shale formation sought a solution that would enable effective drilling and geosteering in a formation with little gamma ray variation, while minimizing drilling costs.
