Well logging department has different standard resistivity, sonic and radioactivity measurements as well as the diplog, vertilog, and sonnan instrumentation. Well logging, also known as borehole logging is the practice of making a detailed record (a well log) of the geologic wireline log consisting of caliper, density and resistivity logs wireline log consisting of a complete set of logs. Geophysical well logging is a three-chapter text that discusses the physics of well logging measurements this book describes the techniques universally used in formation evaluation, including electrical, nuclear, and sonic techniques.
Wireline logging tools, well integrity at gowell, we are constantly evolving to meet our customer´s growing needs. A typical log is presented on folded paper of indeterminate length, but about 85-in [215-cm] wide it consists of a heading , well sketch, logging tool sketch, insert , main log, repeat section and tail. The physical background of well logging methods and the response with respect to reservoir characterization (physical principle, primary information from logs), rules for optimal log combinations, basic equations and models, fundamental techniques of log interpretation. Well logging is used to identify formation and other downhole properties of the well bore logging tools can include radioactive, electric, mechanical, and sonic tools, among others.

An appreciation of the history of logging and the development sequence of analytical methods will help any geologist, geophysicist, or engineer who works with well logs well logging began around 1846 when william thomson (lord kelvin) made measurements of temperature in water wells in england.
Graphic controls vivid well logging papers maximize the performance of your well logging printers our brighter papers provide better contrast and a vivid image that is easier to read and interpret. Well logging generally uses sealed sources containing radioactive materials that emit gamma rays or neutrons the depth of penetration of these radiations is an indication of the type of material the depth of penetration of these radiations is an indication of the type of material. Introduction center for subsurface modeling and characterizations (csmc), directed by dr ji chen, was established as the well logging lab in 1979 by dr liang c shen in the department of electrical engineering of the university of houston to investigate the electric properties of reservoir rocks over a wide range of frequencies.
