APS drills one of the few Turkey horizontal wells

Thursday, July 4, 2013

APS Technology, Inc. announced the successful drilling and geosteering of one of Turkey's few horizontal wells.

Cougar completed a 414 m (1,358 ft) horizontal sidetrack re-entry job in July, 2012 in Turkey's Gaziantep province to improve productivity of an earlier heavy oil discovery. The sidetrack, at 1,868 m (6,129 ft) true vertical depth (TVD), was cased with a 4.5 in. (114 mm) liner. Among the few horizontal wells drilled in Turkey, the well is expected to have important implications for exploiting reserves in the Anatolian Basin.

APS's WPR provides propagation resistivity data and models which can be used with Maxwell Dynamics' LogXD and other geosteering software packages to achieve precise wellbore placement. WPR's data and models can be processed and interpreted by the drilling service provider, via APS's Geosteering Answer Product service offering, or by third party geosteering service providers.
