CGG GeoSoftware Launches Interactive Well Path Planning Technology

By GeoConnexion - 29th October 2020 - 09:05

CGG GeoSoftware has launched WellPath, a new interactive 3D well path planning solution for optimal well planning in unconventional and fractured reservoirs and offshore development platforms, as part of its InsightEarth 3D visualization and interpretation software suite. WellPath shows the complexity of the subsurface drilling environment in 3D so that drillers can quickly plan and QC horizontal wells on high-density, multi-lateral pads or large offshore platforms. Drilling engineers now have the power to perform interactive directional well path planning while adhering to the constraints of geological targets and engineering design. Drillers can optimize plans based on fractures, facies, geobodies, and reservoir attributes while avoiding hazards, legacy wells, and recent completions prevalent in certain areas, such as the Permian Basin of west Texas.
