Schlumberger launched the GeoSphere 360 3D reservoir mapping-while-drilling service

The new service uses a unique combination of advanced cloud & computing solutions and digitally enabled hardware to acquire 3D electromagnetic data

Schlumberger launched the GeoSphere 360 3D reservoir mapping-while-drilling service

GeoSphere 360 delivers real-time 3D reservoir insights which enhance reservoir understanding and enhance well placement to maximize returns from complex reservoirs.

This data is contextualized in real-time to improve the understanding of resistive reservoir bodies and reservoir dynamics, contributing to better field development planning.
Jesus Lamas, president of Well Construction at Schlumberger, said:
  • GeoSphere 360 service is the pinnacle of reservoir mapping while drilling and the 1st in a series of digitally enabled technologies and services that we will bring to market this year
  • Unlike conventional technologies, 3D reservoir mapping while drilling identifies fluid bodies and faults – at a volumetric reservoir scale – which is unique in the industry
  • This is a transformative digital capability that drives improved reservoir understanding, optimised well placement, increased reserves bookings and production per well and enhanced field-development decision making
Schlumberger noted that the GeoSphere 360 service has undergone extensive field testing in various environments around the world.

In the Middle East, an operator leveraged the service for real-time 3D mapping of sand channel bodies, resulting in optimal well placement and maximum reservoir exposure.

In North America, an operator used it to characterize structural and stratigraphic features of a reservoir, providing seismic scale understanding that led to optimized field development planning.

In addition, a North Sea operator used the GeoSphere 360 service to integrate data from multiple scales of measurements, enabling strategic geosteering decisions said to have helped reduce uncertainties, maximize well placement and optimize production potential.
