Paper Number: SPE-204026-MS
... and MWD Sensor Error Modeling Diagram Abstract It has been well documented that magnetic models and Measurement-while-Drilling (MWD) directional sensors are not free from error. It is for this reason that directional surveys are accompanied by an error model that is used to generate an ellipse...
