“See” Ahead of the Bit

Even with the best seismic data and reservoir modeling available, drillers have remained in the dark about what’s in front of the drill bit. A new sensing tool has been designed to “see” ahead of the bit and can transmit data in real time to shift drilling operations from reactive to proactive. In early May, Schlumberger launched the IriSphere look-ahead-while-drilling service, which uses deep directional electromagnetic (EM) technology to detect formation features as far as 100 feet ahead of the drill bit in real time, which allows drillers to adjust operations accordingly.
