This study aims to realize 3D visualization of well trajectory more efficiently by use of a new method. In view of the shortcomings of traditional three-dimensional (3D) modeling methods for well trajectory, a new method of slice-based 3D modeling for the tubular well trajectory was put forward, by which a 3D well trajectory model was established. The method can realize the 3D tubular well trajectory seamless connection efficiently and conveniently without interpolation smoothing treatment of the well trajectory’s crook. In order to provide a convenience to observe and analyze intuitively as well as control the well trajectory effectively in drilling for the drilling staff, realized 3D visualization of the well trajectory based on virtual reality technology and provided flexible human-computer interaction functions with which the drilling staff can make interactive operation such as zooming, translating and rotating, etc., for the 3D well trajectory. Consequently, the well trajectory can be observed from multi-azimuth and multi-angle, improving the oil reservoir encountering rate. Finally, an application example of 3D visualization for well trajectory in Dagang Oilfield was given.
