This paper highlights the tremendous impact of real-time data transmission and visualization through the Aramcolink solution for monitoring geosteering operations in Saudi Aramco. It was very challenging to move from multiple real time data providers to a single solution, which can connect with different service providers by utilizing WITSML, which is industry real-time data transmission protocol. Nevertheless, Saudi Aramco has decided to explore this frontier to provide their operational geoscientists/engineers with a single system through which all should be able to simultaneously monitor several actively drilling wells with ease.
Considering the drilling operation in Saudi Arabia, a system with advanced capabilities of data quality control (QC), rescaling, filtering, alerting, and chatting, was essentially required to assist operational geoscientists in optimizing production through geosteering a well by drilling through the sweet zone and achieve good net to gross value. The new solution "Aramcolink" is not only limited to these capabilities but distinguishes itself among other rival solutions by unmatched features such as data cross-plotting, on the fly azimuthal image dip calculation, built in petrophysical analysis and electrofacies computation, 2D and 3D well trajectory visualization, and others.
Moreover, information is now provided on how using such an approach helped in enforcing Saudi Aramco's standard for real-time log naming, measurement unit, and scaling, thereby facilitating more automated operational workflows. The paper concludes by sharing lessons learned and recommendations for future improvements.
