Non-productive time is the enemy of cost-effective drilling and completion operations. Ikon Science applies proven workflows to accurately predict formation properties, over-pressure, and well stability risk. Armed with accurate predictions, you can plan and execute well programs with confidence
Best practice well design
The complexity and diversity of geological conditions, rock properties, and fluid dynamics make it impossible to precisely predict what will happen when we drill a new well. The key to reducing uncertainty and avoiding unplanned events is thorough planning that incorporates and respects all of the available data.
Best practice well design starts with an integrated team of geotechnical specialists, and a high level of effective communication. Ikon Science applies standard, consistent techniques to each well we analyse, from pre-drill to the final well report.
Our proven workflows improve the prediction of formation properties through which the will be drilled. We analyse regional and local pressure trends to accurately predict over-pressured zones and potential wellbore stability risks. All of these elements contribute to a lower-risk drilling program.
