Measurement/Logging While Drilling (MWD)/(LWD)
Measurement-While-Drilling (MWD) is a type
of well logging that incorporates the
measurement tools into the drillstring and
provides real-time information to help with
steering the drill.
Once a well angle exceeds 60 degrees, the
logging tools can no longer be pushed
through the well to retrieve information,
making conventional logging tools ineffective.
MWD is a type of Logging-While-Drilling (LWD) whereby tools are encompassed
in a single module in the steering tool of the drillstring, at the bottom hole
MWD measurements that are transmitted from downhole to surface enable you
to make reliable wellbore decisions with less NPT. These measurements include
directional surveys, natural gamma ray, drilling dynamics, temperature, and
Our LWD systems offer superior formation evaluation data to maximize reservoir
value while drilling. LWD sensors deliver wireline quality petrophysical data and
address directional drilling, formation evaluation, and geosteering applications.
Our tools will help you gather reservoir information, enhance drilling
performance, and optimize well placement.
