Our consulting services, having built a huge experience in more than 16 countries across the globe, are able to offer wide range of required support, from geosteering and petrophysical interpretation analysis to geomechanical studies of any complexity.

We can help with engineering the best trajectory honoring the specific field geology, aimed to meet the wellbore-stability and well-performance requirements, maximizing well productivity with multistage hydraulic fracturing and delaying water breakthrough.

Drilling risks reduction, well planning and completion programs

1. Predrill wellbore stability as a basis for mud, drilling, cementing, and completion programs
2. Logging program and core analysis
3. Optimal trajectory

  • Trajectory and Well Design optimization
  • Selection best depth for sidetracking
  • Selection the mud type and weight per section
  • Allowable annular pressure limits while drilling and cementing
  • Elaboration of the fit-for-purpose logging program
  • BHA optimization (LWD/MWD)
  • Well planning based on reservoir properties
  • Core testing program optimization
  • Optimized trajectory prior to drilling
  • Drilling without pilot holes
  • Hydraulic, engineering estimations etc



Real time recommendations and decision making

1. Improve drilling effectiveness
2. Real time petrophysical interpretation
3. Keeping the well within sweet spot

  • Borehole condition control (stability and cleaning)
  • Maintain optimal mud parameters, ECD monitoring and control
  • Recommendations on drilling, tripping, circulation, etc based on stability calculation and actual wellbore conditions
  • Key data to perform trajectory corrections in RT
  • Position the well to maximize production and control of deposit inundation
  • Maximizing Net-to-Gross and dealing with geological heterogeneity
  • No need to drill pilot hole
  • Fluid contacts control
  • Drilling in challenging geological formations (Fault control)


After Drilling
After Drilling

Model updating for future wells. Field development optimization.

1. Best practices development. Borehole stability as a basis for effective stimulation
2. Final log interpretation. Core testing
3. Geologic model update and actualization

  • Develop and adhere to best drilling practices
