Abstract

Gearhart-Owen (GOI) took the broadest approach to the development of a measurement-while-drilling (MWD) system. The primary objective was to a measurement-while-drilling (MWD) system. The primary objective was to develop a tool that was as simple as possible and therefore reliable and develop a tool that was as simple as possible and therefore reliable and inexpensive. Reduced to basics, the problem may well be not "can it be done?" inexpensive. Reduced to basics, the problem may well be not "can it be done?" but "what will the service cost and can the industry afford it?".
