ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates, May 19 (UPI) -- Oil services company Schlumberger announced Monday that it will introduce the first ever drilling service option that can map reservoirs at the same time .

The company said its GeoSphere technology is a first for the industry. It gives operators an opportunity to examine reservoirs at the subsurface layer during drilling.

"This long-awaited technology milestone commercialization now enables asset teams to seamlessly integrate the data provided by the reservoir mapping-while-drilling service with other downhole measurements to optimize production and reservoir management," Steve Kaufmann, president of drilling and measurements for Schlumberger, said in a statement Monday.

The service has been tested in more than 140 wells across the globe. A test in Northern Europe resulted in a production increase for an unnamed Schlumberger customer of more than 8,000 barrels of liquids per day.
