Baker Hughes drilled one horizontal well for major Indian operating company in a, low resistivity contrast field, onshore India. The candidate field / basin is a proved petroliferous basin, located in the northeastern corner of India.
The scope of work for this project involved integrating geological and open hole offset parameters to build a Geosteering model. Integrated data included a study of offset well data from the field, regional and local dip analysis from wellbore images, and a review of structural maps. Successful integration of these data helped to steer the well in the desired zone as per plan and make the best use of the data and to reduce uncertainties in Geosteering, drilling. Although high-quality 16-sector images commonly yield bedding dip, fracture and other geological information, this paper emphasizes how real-time reservoir navigation decisions was made using Geosteering modelling, real-time image processing, dip picking study etc.
