See the Speaker Biography and Abstract notice – excerpt:

ABSTRACT: Horizontal wells typically target a specific landing zone and it is expected that the properties of the landing zone as seen in the strat well, extend through the length of the Hz well. However mother nature is not always so kind. Sometimes the trajectory is out of control and sometimes the rock changes its properties. This results in a lack of suitable information []
