The definition of MWD

May 14, 2018

MWD is an abbreviation for “Measurement While Drilling” in English. The wireless measurement while drilling instrument can measure in time during the drilling process. That is, the mud pulse generator sends the data measured by the downhole probe to the ground without stopping drilling. After the computer system collects and processes, the real-time well parameters are obtained. 


And formation parameters. The measurement while drilling instrument can measure the inclination, azimuth, tool face angle and the natural gamma intensity of the well during the drilling process, and provide the well parameters and formation evaluation data for the drilling of high-angle wells and horizontal wells in time. This instrument is an indispensable technical equipment for improving drilling speed and ensuring drilling quality in directional and horizontal well drilling operations.
