Remote and Onsite Geosteering

At Belloy Geologists, we promote the true value of a veteran Calgary well site geologist having an active role in the geological steering of directional and horizontal wells. This has been a fact for many years and all of our top associates have solid experience in supervising the geological and directional aspects of deviated and horizontal wells. It is imperative to use all data available (regional setting, stratigraphy, samples, ROP, Gas, GR, offsetting well info, petrophysical and petrological information) in conjunction with the proposed directional plan to adjust on the fly for the best possible placement and resulting production. It has been proven that placement in the best rock consistently impacts production numbers with positive results.

With multi-well and multi-rig projects, Belloy Geologist has the experience, the associates and access to the most appropriate software for the job. The right wellsite geology software in the hands of an area experienced wellsite geologist greatly benefits the end results and objectives of the project. SES, Smart4D, Transform, etc.

Standards On-Site Geosteering Coverage

As noted on our services tab, the standard coverage for onsite geosteering for a horizontal well involves two geological associates working 12hr shifts for 24/7 coverage to monitor all aspects of the well and to execute the plans as laid out by our client. We utilize Wellsight Systems for the build section and horizontal lateral plus we create a one page composite plot as a summary of the directional, GR, ROP and quality. Sample photos are available upon request.

Remote Geosteering

Since 2006 Belloy Geologists have been involved in 24/7 real-time remote geosteering and supervision of hundreds of horizontal wells. In certain applications, remote geosteering has been proven to reduce drilling time, cut drilling costs, eliminate sidetracks and decrease wellbore length out of pay zone, and therefore maximize total hydrocarbon recovery.

Using real-time MWD data and the latest software technology our geologists monitor and make real-time decisions to effectively steer the bit for optimal wellbore placement.

Geosteering and GeoManagement7

Belloy Geologists In-office GeoManagement

The main goals are to provide in-office operational assistance to the geology department, act as the liaison between geology and drilling and provide geosteering supervision to the geological and/or directional teams in the field. The service is built for multi-well / multi-Rig coverage but can be applied to drilling program.

  • Belloy Geologists utilizes an advanced software provided by DrillingInfo called “Transform GeoSteering”.
  • Belloy Geologists provides the client with up to the minute, active displays (surface, 3D and cross sectional) to assist in the steering, placement and evaluation of multiple well bores.

Geosteering and GeoManagement8

 With the ability to incorporate all available drilling, geological, structural and petrophysical data into an active comprehensive display, trained Belloy Geologists associates assist the drilling and geological departments with the best possible well placement. The Transform software provides:

  • Database platform providing a useful storage and quick access to your well data.
  • Satellite based surface display of well locations and lateral paths.


  • 3D well bore display for all wells drilled within a specific work area including vertical offset control wells.
  • Accurate, graphical 3D display of your actively drilling well with directional plot, ROP, GAS, GR, any drilling parameters (torque, WOB, etc), and any petrophysical data.


  • Ability to turn curves off and on as required.
  • With all area well bores and data incorporated, specific parameters can be selected to be used for accurate geosteering.
  • With the ability to display all wells from an operators multi-well pads, value is added in assisting in project evaluation, future drilling program planning and for quick summary presentations.
  • Fully capable of 3D formation displays, structural data, seismic, production data, etc.


  • The true power of the Tranform GeoSteering software is in the “Cross sectional View” module. This allows our associates to actively geosteer the build and horizontal by comparing the measured depth GR to offsetting wells with True Vertical Depth (TVD) GR. In the process, the program will graphically display the well bore trajectory, the tops above and below (if surfaces provided), and processes the information for accurate formation dip angle calculations.

Extremely powerful platform for assisting in the planning, drilling and summary of your projects.

Belloy Geologists associates with wellsite experience can provide 24/7 office based coverage or remote home-based coverage on both long term or shorter project base programs.
