AFES Meeting: 11th March, 2020

Nigel Clegg Final Piece of the Puzzle   <- download slides Abstract: Optimal well placement requires three-dimensional (3-D) spatial knowledge of the reservoir formation and fluids. Current one-dimensional (1-D) inversions of ultra-deep azimuthal resistivity logging-while-drilling data recover formation boundaries above and below the wellbore only, 1-D modelling, by definition, does not account for any lateral variations.…

AFES Meeting: 15th January, 2020

Haliburton talk on Artificial Intelligence Abstract Knowledge of the lithology of the subsurface is essential for exploring for and developing hydrocarbons. It helps us better understand depositional environments, matrix and fluid compositions, production characteristics, and ultimately exploitation potential. In the subsurface, the interpretation of wireline data plays a critical role in deriving this insight. However,…
