Horizontal well geosteering involves careful monitoring of the well during the drilling phase. To this end, relevant geophysical and geological tools are used to build a consistent geological model. Real-time information enables constant updating of this model providing the necessary information for geosteering decisions. These geosteering procedures allow for close control of the well trajectory in the target layer, reducing the risks of redrilling.
