Program Two: Data From Drilling

Program Leader

Yulia Uvarova, CSIRO

Program Objective

This program will develop technologies for capturing geochemical, petrophysical and seismic data either during drilling or within the drilling workflow.  The program will also deliver software that will enable drilling data to be integrated into 3D geological models in real-time, delivering timely data to inform decisions on drill holes during drilling.  This will contribute to drilling productivity through more efficient targeting, by minimising mobilisation costs and by allowing modifications to the drilling program during deployment.
