Geology while drilling: Digital enabler for Sustainable Energy

October 25, 2023
SLB
Geological evaluation of subsurface is an essential component of formation evaluation that connects well-centric data to reservoir scale. Recent technology breakthroughs in logging-while-drilling (LWD) borehole imaging and advanced surface logging have attracted substantial attention of the energy industry, more so for possible applications in sustainable energy initiatives. Digital innovations have led to development of smart and efficient solutions that can be made available in real-time for strategic decisions as the well gets drilled. Geology while drilling is taking the center stage from picking mineralogy on cuttings to inferring depositional architecture and structural framework with image logs with deep learning workflows and artificial intelligence embedded in the tools. Geothermal, hydrogen exploration and carbon sequestration all can benefit with these digital innovations in geology while drilling.
