MWD RESISTIVITY TOOL GUIDES BIT HORIZONTALLY IN THIN BED

Richard A. Fagin Teleco Oilfield Services Inc. Houston Jane E. Trusty, Lisa R. Emmet, Mark K. Mayo American Exploration Co. Houston Dual propagation resistivity (DPR) measurements and modeling helped steer a horizontal well through a thin oil zone to avoid a nearby oil/water contact. The horizontal well came on-line flowing 380 bo/d with no water production. Offset vertical wells produce an average of 33 bo/d with an 83% saltwater cut.
