Title: The use of new LWD High Resolution Ultrasonic Imaging Tool to Unlock the Reservoir Potential

Speaker: Davide Di Tommaso (Operations Manager Petrophysics – Weatherford)

Abstract: A recently launched Logging- While-Drilling (LWD) ultrasonic imaging tool now enables operators to obtain high-resolution structural, stratigraphic, and borehole geometry information in both water and oil-based muds by means of acoustic impedance contrast and ultrasonic amplitude measurements. Results from the very first deployment of this new imager in Europe will be presented.

Biography: Davide is the Operations Manager Petrophycist at Weatherford responsible of processing and interpretation of LWD data and of well placement supervision in North Sea, Continental Europe and West Africa. Davide joined Weatherford, one of the largest multinational oilfield service companies, in 2007 as LWD Field Engineer after he had been working for 2 years at the University as geophysicist. He has then covered different positions within the company from Coordinator to Formation Evaluation Specialist for North Mediterranean area.
