RMS 2010 - Well Correlation & Geosteering

A new well correlation environment provides the smoothest possible start to the reservoir modelling workflow. New features include the ability to flatten the stratigraphy on one or more horizon. New geosteering capabilities, allowing the user to check the correlation of the new well data, trigger a model update, use the deviated well session while monitoring the well, and continue to monitor and adjust the well path during drilling.

Initiating the workflow and correlating horizons and zones between wells is no longer a complicated task. The new well correlation tool within RMS 2010 makes picking and tracking the geology simpler, faster and more adaptable. Templates can be well-specific, picks and interpretations can be tracked across multiple wells, and horizons and fault picks can be inserted and interactively adjusted.

You can set up templates to view the well data with flexible colouring and patterning of the stratigraphy, and you can also flatten the stratigraphy on one or more horizon. Flattening helps to catch subtle changes in the sequence, as does comparing log responses in different wells using ghost curves. These ghosts can be resized and mirrored to deal with changes in the geology or well path orientation.

The well correlation tool is also linked to the Roxar geosteering capabilities, allowing the user to check the correlation of the new well data, trigger a model update, use the deviated well session while monitoring the well, and continue to monitor and adjust the well path during drilling. All this takes place without ever having to leave the RMS environment.
