There are a lot of talks these days about the importance of master drilling exploration – and for good reason. By understanding the process and what goes into it, you can make better decisions about your own drilling projects.
What should I know about this?
Here’s a quick overview of exploration, and why it matters.
Drilling exploration is the process of creating a new well or re-entering an old well to explore for oil or gas. The purpose of master drilling exploration is to find new reserves, assess the potential of known reserves, and produce hydrocarbons.
Master exploration involves three main stages: pre-drilling, drilling, and post-drilling. During pre-drilling, geologists and geophysicists study the area to be drilled. They use seismic surveys and other data to create a model of the subsurface. This helps them identify where oil or gas might be located.
