The economics behind geosteering or high-cost drilling can cost-justify using logging-while-drilling (LWD) sensors to acquire data in real time. Halliburton uses LWD sensors to help direct high-angle and horizontal drilling, and to ensure efficient use of expensive rig time.
Sperry Drilling services lead the industry with the largest and most robust high pressure, high temperature offering and invest in significant research and development in HP/HT technology. In HP or HT wells, equipment is required to withstand temperatures higher than 300°F/149°C and pressures above 18,000 psi/124 MPa. Today, the majority of Sperry Drilling’s measurement/logging-while-drilling (M/LWD) tools are rated to 347°F/175°C and 25,000 psi/172 MPa.
