Placing a well in your reservoir’s sweet spot is critical to maximizing production potential. Logging-While-Drilling (LWD) Formation Evaluation services from Baker Hughes give you the downhole information you need to optimize your well placement and completions strategies.
Full-spectrum evaluation while drilling
Get crucial information on your formation’s composition and structure, with a comprehensive set of LWD evaluation tools and services.
Make real-time decisions for improved geosteering and reservoir contact with our LithoTrak™ bulk density and neutron porosity service and OnTrak™ integrated measurement-while-drilling/logging-while-drilling (MWD/LWD) tool. And with high-quality pore space measurements from the MagTrak™ LWD magnetic resonance service, you can locate and quantify recoverable hydrocarbons with high accuracy.
Avoid wellbore stability challenges in complex formations with services like the SoundTrak™ acoustic formation measurement tool, which provides formation slowness measurements to update your pore pressure models while drilling. And with the StarTrak™ high-resolution electrical imaging service and ZoneTrak™ G near-bit gamma service, you get detailed reservoir characterization and gamma images to identify drilling-induced and natural fractures—information you can use to adjust mud weight and avoid wellbore collapse and BHA sticking.
With this full suite of LWD formation evaluation tools, you get real-time insights to precisely place and drill a high-quality wellbore for better completion operations and long-term production gains.
Let’s work together to develop the right while-drilling formation evaluation strategy and optimize your field development plans.
