SURVEY MANAGEMENT 

Our industry-leading survey management services enhance the accuracy of your downhole surveys and tighten survey tolerances, increasing the certainty and precision of wellbore placement. This is vital when collision risks are high, pay zones are tight, boundaries are close or when trying to maximize well spacing while pad drilling.  

Through real-time survey corrections the inherent uncertainties of well trajectory are reduced and these corrected surveys can then be utilized in the field to make more precise steering decisions.

 

The Phoenix survey management team includes industry leading experts and all team members are Industry Steering Committee on Wellbore Survey Accuracy (ISCWCA) certified. They provide 24 hour monitoring and corrections from our in-house survey management center. All survey management techniques comply with the highest industry standards and can be provided on any well regardless of the directional provider or MWD system employed.

Lateral Survey Optimization

Lateral survey optimization allows our clients to reduce the ellipsoid of uncertainty during the planning and execution of each well. This allows us to maximize the efficiency of your operations with real-time measurement and enables us to lower drilling risk in multi-lateral pad projects. Lateral survey optimization is capable of: observing real-time diurnal variances, utilizing enhanced magnetic model and correcting drill string magnetization.
