Roadmaps improve extended reach well performance ///

Advances in downhole tool technology have improved operators' ability to extend the limits of existing rig capabilities in modern extended reach (ER) and complex well environments. However, the maximum benefit of using this equipment is only realized when theoretical drag and hydraulics modeling is applied. Several examples are cited in which operators have used real-time roadmaps to provide insight at the rig floor into what is happening downhole, therefore improving drilling performance and overall decision making.
