Unlock reservoir potential with shallow and ultra-deep boundary mapping.Talk to an expert
The EarthStar X near-bit, shallow, and ultra-deep resistivity service unlocks reservoir potential with near-bit, ultra-deep boundary mapping. The early detection of geological changes enables quick well trajectory corrections to remain in the most productive zones of even the most complex reservoirs, maximizing asset value.
To geosteer, geostop, and geomap the geology accurately all around the wellbore the service uses ultra-deep azimuthal resistivity measurements and best-in-class inversion processing. Real-time visualization of numerous fluid and bed boundaries enables placing the well in the reservoir's most productive zone and increasing the section's net-to-gross value.
When run with the iCruise® rotary steerable system, the EarthStar X service reduces the sensor-to-bit distance to only 9 feet (3 meters) allowing the early detection of formation changes and proactive well path adjustments to avoid early exits.
The EarthStar X service offers detailed conventional resistivity readings that support in-depth petrophysical analysis of the reservoir. Near-bit resistivity measurements from 3 spacings, along with Rv and Rh in real-time enable early fluid characterization and improved evaluation of the reserves.
The integrated resistivity approach eliminates the need for a separate propagation resistivity tool, minimizing thread connections and BHA length. Increased distance and time to adjust the well path reduces the likelihood of significant borehole tortuosity, which is critical to the completion's success.
