Over the last few years, Sampling While Drilling would seem an obvious choice for specific well scenarios However, the technology has been treated as somewhat new in the industry despite being
reasonably mature The evolution of this technology and its present capability needs a critique so that it
will enhance future applications The lessons learnt and best practices need to be shared with a wider
audience, in order to make it more acceptable and help realize the value The entire workflow from
selecting a particular technology and pre job planning to real time monitoring and post job analyses are
uniquely tied together, with varied technical experiences, but it still needs to be made more harmonious
With so many new technical developments, this subject needs a broader share to assimilate the value of
information, save cost and deliver efficient operations It is expected that the interactive discussion on this
topic will encourage operators to consider this technology not in isolation, but as an aid to optimize their
operations, and put forward cases that allow continued innovation by technology providers
