why choose FGS? What really makes FGS an innovator in geosteering? We are the only organization in the world with the ability and track record to steer using geochemical data in addition to LWD.
Why is this important? Using geochemistry, our geologists immediately identify if your hydrocarbon zone(s) have migrated relative to a drilling target based purely off geophysical data. This is particularly salient within laterally discontinuous geologic targets such as the Bone Spring Wolfcamp trend within the Delaware. Steering using purely LWD is insufficient within laterally homogeneous geophysical signatures. Geochemical data, and our significant understanding of it (which is crucial), give us the capabilty to identify discreet rock units within your geologic target to help define your drilling target with greater confidence. By understanding geochemical structure in its relation to stratigraphy, we can reduce sliding time and "porpoising" from chasing gamma signatures that may or may not be there. No other company can match this expertise FGS can bring to
your production or exploration horizontal project.
FGS is highly expericened in facilitating accurate landing points, knows the difference of true target contraints as they relate to both geologic and drilling targets, and has experience in making drilling target adjustments. Our primary objective at all times, whether using geochemistry techniques or not, is to minimize dog legs and reduce sliding times by maintaining a higher percentage within the drilling target, enabling you to drill faster straighter well bores.
