A method for determining a total vertical depth (TVD) for a well plan involves measuring differences between a projected BHA position at a depth of a survey station and a calculated BHA position based upon a minimum curvature method at the depth of the survey station. The differences are accumulated at each survey station with respect to the BHA position. Real time TVD corrected gamma logs are generated responsive to the accumulated differences of the BHA position.

An actively controlled exercise device provides a dynamic force responsive workout. The device includes: a user output arm movably attached to a base frame; an actuator attached between the user output arm and the base frame, the actuator including a motor and an output shaft connected to the user output arm; at least one position sensor attached to the actively controlled exercise device adjacent to the user output arm for detecting a position and velocity of the output arm; a load cell attached to the actively controlled exercise device adjacent to the actuator for detecting a force exerted on the user output arm; and a force controller in communication with the position sensor, the load cell, and the actuator for activating the actuator to impart a force on the user output arm during an exercise repetition.


A method for controlling drilling direction of a bore hole assembly (BHA) while laterally drilling through a formation involves accessing, by a surface steerable system, recent TVD corrected logging history data from a bore hole estimator, iteratively determining, by the surface steerable system, a formation bed dip of the formation being laterally drilled through, repeating the steps of accessing the recent TVD corrected logging history data and iteratively determining the formation bed dip of the formation responsive to additional well information, determining, by the surface steerable system, a most probable statistical match of a well bore positions to predicated well bore positions based on the accessed recent TVD corrected logging history data, the determined formation bed dip and the additional well information and providing, by the surface steerable system, geosteering feedback responsive to the determined most probable statistical match.


An apparatus associated with a drilling rig includes a surface steerable system for controlling drilling direction of a bottom hole assembly (BHA). The surface steerable system is configured to receive drilling rig parameters from the BHA. A database stores historical data related to the drilling rig. The historical data relates to previously tracked operations of the drilling rig. The surface steerable system is further configured to perform a plurality of tracking functions with respect to the drilling rig parameters. The plurality of tracking functions cause the surface steerable system to track drilling rig parameters from sensors associated with the drilling rig, access the database of the historical data relating to previously tracked operations of the drilling rig and control operating functions of the drilling rig responsive to at least one of the drilling rig parameters from the sensors associated with the drilling rig and the historical data from the database.
