Chinook delivers customizable Geosteering Services and solutions based on specific company needs ranging from look-backs to full-active geosteering.
Setup and deliverables are listed below:
24 hours per day active geosteering performed by a rotating team of two geosteering geologists. The geosteering team can be working from Chinook’s Operation Space (hardware and software licenses included in service), from Operator’s premises (hardware and software supplied by Operator) or from field offices (hardware and software leased by Chinook as part of the service). Multiple wells can be steered simultaneously by the same team.
12 Hours shift geosteering supervision to augment reservoir navigation performed by staff geologists or geosteerers.
Geosteering projects are shared on-line and in real-time with staff geosteering team. Nite Geosteerer works from a dedicated station in Chinook’s Operations Space. Multiple wells can be steered simultaneously.
Project set-up is usually done by staff team, but can be built by Chinook geosteerer as well. Access to shared online platform such as ROGII Solo for Starsteer is preferred and can be arranged by Chinook. Active geosteering is performed by Nite Geosteerer while on shift at 2-4 hours intervals or as needed. Service includes:
Reduced volume of geosteering interpretations interpretation while drilling, used as a second opinion or guideline for wellsite operations.
Look-back geosteering interpretation of wells and pads performed after drilling concluded. Position of wellpath within the target zone is analyzed. No real-time targets are produced.
Geosteering interpretation of competitor wells and pads. Visualize where they drilled, well design, targets zones used.
Geosteering interpretation deployed temporarily, on short notice.
When needed, Chinook on-call geosteerers can quickly run data through geosteering software and create a punctual interpretation. This approach is especially useful when the location of the wellpath relative to formation markers is not known or when a second opinion is needed.
Depending on project size and duration, as well as operator preferences, geosteering services can be deployed from operators premises, from Chinook’s Operation Space, from field offices in conjunction with Geological Wellsite Supervision, or in combinations.
Location: At Chinook’s office
Personnel: 4 geosteering geologists, working 12 hours shifts in 2-weeks-on / 2-weeks-off hitches; Dedicated team is screened by operator and takes part in pre-job meetings
Operation covered: One team can supervise multiple wells drilling concurrently (generally up to four wells)
Location: Operator’s Office
Personnel: 4 geosteering geologists, working 12 hours shifts in 2-weeks-on / 2-weeks-off hitches
Operation covered: One team can supervise multiple wells drilling concurrently (generally up to four wells) Dedicated team is screened by operator and takes part in pre-job meetings
Location: At the rig
Personnel: 2 wellsite geologists working 12 hours shifts on a rotation basis
Operation covered: One team per well, wellsite geologists on location for intermediate and lateral sections
Any number of combinations of the scenarios listed above, for example:
Location: At the rig and office in town (in-house or at Chinook’s facility)
Personnel: Single wellsite geologists at the rig, working back to back with geosteering geologist in office; alternately, a 24 hour remote supervision can back a single wellsite geologist
Operation covered: One wellsite geologist per well, wellsite geologists on location for intermediate and lateral sections, remote geosteerers in town covering multiple rigs
Depending on reservoir type, reporting requirement and deliverables, geosteering services can be delivered in the following flavours.
Applicable for geosteering of large number of similar wells, service only deployed in the lateral section only;
Up to 8 rigs per station, reports every 4 hours, wells supervised in the lateral section only;
Applicable for geosteering of unconventional reservoirs (shale oil, shale gas, tight gas), supervision of build and lateral sections;
Up to 4 rigs per station, reports every 4 hours, wells supervised continuously;
Applicable for geosteering of unconventional reservoirs (shale oil, shale gas, tight gas), supervision of wells from spud to TD, as well as pre-spud and completion;
Up to 2 rigs per station, reports every 4 hours, wells supervised continuously;
