Abstract

In drilling and geoscience domains, platform determination is an issue. As geoscientists seek to maximize the access to a reservoir by placing good targets, drillers seek to design a well with least difficulty to drill. Organizations want both the good targets and minimum possible cost.

PLATFORM SELECTION METHOD

Background

[0001] In drilling and geoscience domains, platform determination is an issue. As geoscientists seek to maximize the access to a reservoir by placing good targets, drillers seek to design a well

with least difficulty to drill. Organizations want both the good targets and minimum possible cost.

Brief Description of the Drawings

[0002] In the figures: [0003] Figure 1 illustrates an example of a system that includes various management components to manage various aspects of a geologic environment, according to an embodiment.

[0004] Figure 2 illustrates a view of an implementation of the method of the present disclosure, according to an embodiment.

[0005] Figure 3 illustrates a schematic view of a computing system, according to an embodiment.

Detailed Description

[0006] Reference will now be made in detail to embodiments, examples of which are illustrated in the accompanying drawings and figures. In the following detailed description, numerous

specific details are set forth in order to provide a thorough understanding of the invention.

However, it will be apparent to one of ordinary skill in the art that the invention may be practiced

without these specific details. In other instances, well-known methods, procedures, components,

circuits, and networks have not been described in detail so as not to unnecessarily obscure aspects

of the embodiments.

[0007] It will also be understood that, although the terms first, second, etc. may be used herein to describe various elements, these elements should not be limited by these terms. These terms

are only used to distinguish one element from another. For example, a first object or step could

be termed a second object or step, and, similarly, a second object or step could be termed a first

object or step, without departing from the scope of the present disclosure. The first object or step,

and the second object or step, are both, objects or steps, respectively, but they are not to be

considered the same object or step.

[0008] The terminology used in the description herein is for the purpose of describing particular embodiments and is not intended to be limiting. As used in this description and the appended

claims, the singular forms “a,” “an” and “the” are intended to include the plural forms as well,

unless the context clearly indicates otherwise. It will also be understood that the term “and/or” as

used herein refers to and encompasses any possible combinations of one or more of the associated

listed items. It will be further understood that the terms “includes,” “including,” “comprises”

and/or “comprising,” when used in this specification, specify the presence of stated features,

integers, steps, operations, elements, and/or components, but do not preclude the presence or

addition of one or more other features, integers, steps, operations, elements, components, and/or

groups thereof. Further, as used herein, the term “if” may be construed to mean “when” or “upon”
