Abstract

An LWD directional electromagnetic (EM) bed boundary mapping tool in the BHA enabled KJO and Schlumberger geoscientists and engineers to precisely geosteer and place wellbore trajectory within thin target reservoir. After successful proactive well placement a completion design that included field-adjustable nozzles on the ICDs resulted in production with significantly less water cut compared to other wells in the field that were completed conventionally. The complimentary effect of optimal well placement with pressure compensated ICD completion design has improved production from Khafji sand stringers with marked decrease in water production.
