The report discusses the benefits of drilling horizontal wells in order to relieve geological uncertainties during oil and gas exploration. The application of the approach significantly increases the informativity in the drilling area, allows you to assess the main geological parameters of the reservoir and their variability in the section, reduce uncertainties on the productivity of horizontal wells, which are increasingly chosen by oil and gas companies for hydrocarbon production, as well as reduce the time between the exploration and production at capital costs commensurate with classical exploration wells.
