Overview

Overview

The VisiTrak™ reservoir navigation and analysis service lets you see more of your reservoir – a 360° view of the wellbore from up to 150 feet (45.7 m). You’ll know exactly where you are and where you need to go to build a better well.

Land your well more efficiently

With conventional logging-while-drilling (LWD) mapping and navigation technology, it’s possible to see only about 20 feet (6.10 m) away from the wellbore. Because the VisiTrak service can map the reservoir up to five times that distance in real time, drilling costly pilot holes to confirm the top and bottom of the reservoir isn’t necessary. Worrying about coming in too low or too high and spending unnecessary time steering back into the reservoir is eliminated, saving you time and money.

Find the sweet spot and stay in it longer

The navigation technology of VisiTrak’s extended range signal identifies and gathers reliable data, allowing immediate review and analysis. The data provide a real-time, 360° view of the wellbore, allowing you to not only see the target, but to drill straight to it and stay in it. The advanced navigation technology behind the VisiTrak service lets you identify the optimal producing zone and helps you avoid early exits – keeping you in the sweet spot longer.

Build a better long-term plan

The ability to see 100 feet into the reservoir to map approaching beds, boundaries, and pay zones reduces seismic uncertainly in real time, so you can design a completion and field management plan that maximizes long-term production potential.
