The Application of Magnetic Guidance Drilling Technology in Shengli Oilfield

Xiangfeng CAO, Qinglong LIU


The magnetic guidance drilling technology could use the magnetic guidance instrument to measure the distance between the signal source and the instrument, which is used to control the well trajectory. It is an essential supplement of the existing steering drilling technology. At present, the magnetic guidance drilling technology is mainly applied to dual horizontal wellslls for heavy oil reservoir, CBM horizontal connected wells, wells to mine underground soluble minerals, and relief wells. This paper mainly introduces the working process of magnetic guidance drilling technology and connected wells. In order to test the overall performance of this technology, an experimental study is conducted on it, and the field test was carried on Shengli oil field.
