TECHNICAL DISCUSSIONS

 

Click a link for more information...

 

1.) Geosteering Mechanics - presents geosteering basics and an introduction to technical geosteering. Technical geosteering leads to geologic bed location estimates and revised planned drilling paths.

 

2.) Technical Hole Deviation (THD) - presents an introduction to THD, including the equations and reasons for inventing it.

 

3.) THD Logs - explains a different way of presenting the directional well plan and associated deviations experienced while drilling a directional or horizontal well bore.

 

4.) FDD Controller - Fuzzy Logic meets directional/horizontal steering guidance for the first time.

 

5.) GLOSSARY of terms related to THD Technology.
