CWLS presentation: Delivering, deploying and harnessing invaluable data

Cordax, Crescent Point to discuss multi-well LWT collaboration in west-central Saskatchewan

Jan. 8, 2018

Information is king. And in the upstream energy sector, data simply dominates.

Next week, at Calgary’s Fairmont Palliser Hotel, Cordax Evaluation Technologies and Crescent Point Energy Corp. will be making a joint presentation on a multi-well collaboration in Saskatchewan that was based on Cordax’s proprietary Logging While Tripping (LWT) technology.

The noon-hour presentation on Wednesday, Jan. 16, during a Canadian Well Logging Society (CWLS) Technical Luncheon, will focus on the data collected by Cordax’s LWT solution in Saskatchewan’s Viking Formation starting in the summer of 2017—and how that data helped determine locations for subsequent wells drilled and completed by Crescent Point.

The collaboration aimed to:

·         Strengthen Crescent Point’s understanding of reservoir quality and resource boundaries;

·         Target the most productive rock within the horizontal wellbore;

·         Optimize well construction engineering, to improve productivity and hydrocarbon recovery;

·         Customize stimulation parameters to optimize frac efficiencies; and

·         Minimize the impact on ongoing drilling operations.

This partnership, carried out in the Plato and Dodsland areas, leveraged the full suite of horizontal logs produced by Cordax’s LWT solution—spectral gamma, neutron and density porosity, induction, and azimuthal resistivity curves.

The Jan. 16 presentation will be made by Jessica Beal, Crescent Point’s geologist for the Viking Formation, and Mike Carter, Cordax’s senior vice president of geoscience.

“This presentation will focus on high-level details of the data logged, data deployment and acquisition, and drilling impacts,” says the CWLS, and explore the “future possibilities from multi-disciplines of geology, drilling, completions and production.”
