Pre-Drill and Post-Drill results of the horizontal injector well at location 3-3-72-5W6M have been evaluated and compared. A 3D earth model has, rapidly and successfully, detailed a map of the reservoir for horizontal drilling.

The designed trajectory was closely followed, resulting in a successful well with early cleanup oil flow rates prior to injection test of 89 m3/d (600 BOPD) and a stable water injection rate of 230 m3/d (1450 BWPD).

The prediction capability of the 3D mapping and characterization provides a viable method for reducing risk while optimizing well placement.
