With our vast resource pool of established well-site geologists, Columbine Logging’s geosteering services has been a synergetic progression from our core mudlogging and well-site geology to this more advanced, integrated and strategic practice. As our client’s rig counts grow, their ability to scale and to steer more rigs has strained their operations consequently partnered with Columbine to offer these enriched services.
Columbine Logging geosteering operations provide proactive well path supervision that sustain AFE objectives – especially in smaller targets that often require complex well paths and more accurate well-bore position.
Our geosteering process is designed to help the geologist locate the target zone and drill the lateral in a manner that maximizes the chances of successful well completion. We often incorporate seismic into geosteering plan in order to anticipate all the numerous faulting in the most challenging plays thus we stay "in zone" using all the data available for real time critical drilling decisions given high the ROPs and tight ROI's that are our demanding customers routinely and reliably receive form Columbine Logging.
The well is projected to land in a graben where there is little obvious faulting in the upper Niobrara section; however, there is a fault exhibiting 50 to 60 ft throw crossing into the up thrown side and cutting the Ft. Hayes and lower Niobrara, yet there is no offset in the A chalk. There will be numerous small faults (~10 ft throw) until reaching the bounding fault, which will be reached at approximately 1060 ft from 0 VS, and the well will cross into the up thrown side with 60-70 of throw. After this there are no obvious big faults through the rest of the seismic line, but smaller faults may pose problems.
