Onshore Drilling Services
Provided by SDI, Onshore Drilling Specialists
Scientific Drilling excels in providing quality well placement services to onshore drilling projects around the world. Our experience ranges from drilling single wells in remote locations to “factory” drilling as many as sixty wells from a single site location. Pad drilling, the process of drilling wells in a multi-well surface land location configuration, makes good sense from both an economical standpoint and from an environmental standpoint. The use of gMWD services are especially supportive to pad drilling operations because it allows for drilling with accurate positional data while in close proximity to offset wellbore.
For both remote and pad locations, SDI’s MWD kit can be configured as a combo kit comprising of a multi-hole size system that can transmit data with either mud pulses or electromagnetic signals. The E-Field electromagnetic MWD can be used from the upper drilling intervals and can be used to finish drilling the productive interval in most regions. However, when the formation does not allow for electromagnetic telemetry we can switch to a Mud Pulse telemetry with the same basic drilling assembly. The same instrument sonde can be used in 9-1/2”, 8”, 6-3/4”, 6-1/2”, 6-1/4”, 4-3/4”, 3-1/2” and 3-1/8” with only a few changes to the rubber fin centralizers and the pulser running gear.
In addition to drilling services, SDI provides Keeper rate-gyro systems for onshore drilling projects to survey the wellbore and orient downhole assemblies.
