Title: Interdisciplinary Approach to Successful Drilling: ABSTRACT

Author(s): L. R. Louden, Billy W. Aud

Article Type: Meeting abstract


A multidiscipline approach to well planning has proved successful in determining "drillability" lithology and pressure profile in unknown or relatively undrilled basins. The marriage of seismic velocity information to classic historical geology, facilitated by translation of the combined information into drilling parameters, guides the planning and drilling of technical wildcats. Work done in the Santa Barbara Channel and a case history of the GHK #1-22 Farrar are examples of the multidiscipline approach.
