The drilling of horizontal and highly deviated wells has become a regular technique in the development of both oil and gas fields, enabling greater well bore access to reservoirs and thereby yielding greater well productivity. It seems likely that highly deviated and horizontal wells will also become common place for field appraisal, as they can yield valuable information on both the lateral properties and dimensions of reservoirs (Robertson et al. 1992). This information is not necessarily obtained from correlations of vertical wells, especially in heterogeneous formations.
