Wellbore placement involves the engineering, technology, and know-how required to geometrically position the different types of wells in the reservoir while avoiding existing wells and geohazards. As a fundamental component of the directional drilling discipline, wellbore placement technologies and techniques have vastly advanced over the last decade and continue to evolve at a very rapid speed. This exciting session will cover new developments related to definitive survey, a new magnetic reference technique, and high-resolution data trajectory analysis.
