MWD TOOLS OPEN WINDOW AT BIT

A new measurement while-drilling (MWD) system takes resistivity and directional measurements directly at the bit, allowing drillers and geologists to "see" the true direction and inclination of the bit with respect to the formation drilled. With real-time resistivity measurements at the bit (RAB), the formation is logged before fluid invasion occurs and the driller can steer directional wells more accurately, than with conventional tools, according to Trevor Burgess, technical sales manager
