LWD/MWD proximity techniques offer accelerated relief well operations ///

Relief well projects can now employ aggressive techniques that will dramatically improve overall efficiency and reliability. These techniques employ the proprietary LWD/MWD tool, MagTrac, * with sound project management, well planning and appropriate directional drilling tools to allow the relief well project to be completed in less time and with less risk. Hole problems are potentially reduced because openhole logging and pipe tripping is eliminated during the ranging-to-target phase. Reducing the overall time and costs required to reach the objective positively affects pollution impacts and reserve losses. The overall result is an aggressive relief well strategy with minimal risks.
