  • Publication number: 20190257189
    Abstract: Various implementations directed to determining direct hit or unintentional crossing probabilities for wellbores are provided. In one implementation, a method may include receiving wellbore trajectory data and uncertainty data for a reference wellbore section and for an offset wellbore section. The method may further include determining an analysis point in the reference wellbore section based on the received wellbore trajectory data. The method may additionally include determining segments for the offset wellbore section based on the received wellbore trajectory data. In addition, the method may include determining combined uncertainties corresponding to the analysis point and the segments based on the received uncertainty data. The method may also include determining direct hit probabilities between the analysis point and the segments based on the combined uncertainties.

  • Publication number: 20120245850
    Abstract: It is described a system and a method for for azimuth initialization of a gyroscopic and/or inertial instrument for wellbore surveying, said system comprising:—a rigid reference structure to which the gyroscopic and /or inertial instrument is rigidly connectable;—an external navigation system for providing an azimuth measurement as a function of time, and wherein the rigid reference structure provides a rigid orientation between the external navigation system and the gyroscopic and/or inertial instrument; —a processor operable to synchronize the azimuth measurement as a function of time with an orientation as a function of time of the gyroscopic and/or inertial instrument.
