AES / PE / 13-14 Downhole depth estimation for automated subsurface navigation July 8 , 2013

Executive summary This thesis proposes and evaluates a concept for downhole depth estimation by matching subsurface measurements from two sensors in a bottom hole assembly. The application of a downhole depth estimate in automated subsurface navigation has also been demonstrated. One of the key hurdles in achieving real time subsurface navigation lies in… (More)
