    • Data-flow and Communication in the decision process
    • Case Study
      • Otter 210/15a-T1
    • Conclusions
  • 3. Field Location
  • 4. Otter Field Summary 36.5 api Oil density 443 scf/bbl GOR 78.5 C Temp 1970m SS 92m Standoff 2062m SS Crest OWC Oct. 2002 subsea tie-back to Eider First Oil Approval 2001 Dev.

  • 6. Well T1
  • 7. Otter Well T1
  • 8. Geoteering Targets – Well T1 210 m 8 m T10 Sand 3000 m OWC N S
  • 9. Geosteering Objectives
    • Maintain Standoff from OWC
    • Target Best Quality Rock (T10 sands)
      • 8m target (upper part 4 m target)
    • Avoid poor quality sandstones above T10
    • Avoid Coals in Top Ness immediately below T10
    • Reinterpret structure real time and adjust trajectory to account for sub-seismic faults
  • 10. Geosteering Issues
    • Lag time
      • Time between receiving data and making the decision (analysis time)
      • Time between making the decision and achieving the target objective (trajectory adjustment time)
        • 4 deg per 30m, if you want to change the trajectory by 6 deg then 45 m is required
      • Distance between the bit and the measurement device
    • Things can change during the lag time
      • Be prepared for the unexpected
    • No real ‘look ahead’. You can look up and look down but not ahead

  • 34. Post Drill Interpretation OWC 50 m Sand N/G: 95% (218 m) Pay N/G: 91% (210 m) Average Permeability: 1500 mD Average Porosity: 25% N S
  • 35. Conclusions – Real Time Images
    • Real time images and log data allow rapid adjustment of the structural model
    • The well trajectory can be continually adjusted to maximise pay
      • 4 deg per 30 m
    • Side tracks can be avoided
    • Reduced rig time
    • Reduced well time
    • Value added data for structural review and reservoir interpretation
