Attaining Optimal Lateral Spacing on Multi-Well Pads via New-Generation MWD Survey Corrections
Please join us on Thursday November 16, 2017 where we will have a discussion about the different methods of detecting and correcting lateral spacing errors, in an effort to eliminate causes of sub-optimal production from multi-well pads. A new survey correction technique will be presented.
The presentation will discuss the types and magnitudes of errors found in MWD surveys based on a look into quantitative data pulled from actual wells. It will discuss drivers of survey error; including twist, which is not represented in standard MWD error models. Finally, different types of MWD corrections will be covered, focusing specifically on the varying roles and capabilities of IFR, MSA, and FDIR. FDIR (Fault Detection, Isolation, and Recovery) is a new generation of MWD survey correction, which applies aerospace navigation techniques to the problem of wellbore navigation. It was specifically designed to address the East/West accuracy and overall solution ambiguity problems that can cause gross errors in Multi-Station Analysis (MSA) solutions.
