Methods that draw on both acoustic and electrical imaging techniques using the same logging tool Porosity logs Porosity logs measure the fraction or percentage of pore volume in a volume of rock.

Most porosity logs use either acoustic or nuclear technology. Acoustic logs measure characteristics of sound waves propagated through the well-bore environment. Nuclear logs utilize nuclear reactions that take place in the downhole logging instrument or in the formation.

Nuclear logs include density logs and neutron logs, as well as gamma ray logs which are used for correlation.

Since there is little difference in the neutrons scattered by hydrocarbons or water, the porosity measured gives a figure close to the true physical porosity whereas the figure obtained from electrical resistivity measurements is that due to the conductive formation fluid.

The difference between neutron porosity and electrical porosity measurements therefore indicates the presence of hydrocarbons in the formation fluid.

Density The density log measures the bulk density of a formation by bombarding it with a radioactive source and measuring the resulting gamma ray count after the effects of Compton Scattering and Photoelectric absorption. This bulk density can then be used to determine porosity. Neutron porosity The neutron porosity log works by bombarding a formation with high energy epithermal neutrons that lose energy through elastic scattering to near thermal levels before being absorbed by the nuclei of the formation atoms.

Depending on the particular type of neutron logging tool, either the gamma ray of capture, scattered thermal neutrons or scattered, higher energy epithermal neutrons are detected. Boron is known to cause anomalously low neutron tool count rates due to it having a high capture cross section for thermal neutron absorption.

Sonic A sonic log provides a formation interval transit time, which typically a function of lithology and rock texture but particularly porosity. The logging tool consists of a piezoelectric transmitter and receiver and the time taken to for the sound wave to travel the fixed distance between the two is recorded as an interval transit time. Lithology logs Gamma ray A log of the natural radioactivity of the formation along the borehole, measured in API units , particularly useful for distinguishing between sands and shales in a siliclastic environment.

Well logging

In some rocks, and in particular in carbonate rocks, the contribution from uranium can be large and erratic, and can cause the carbonate to be mistaken for a shale. In this case, The carbonate gamma ray is a better indicator of shaliness.

It was one of the first wireline logs to be developed, found when a single potential electrode was lowered into a well and a potential was measured relative to a fixed reference electrode at the surface.

The magnitude of this deflection depends mainly on the salinity contrast between the drilling mud and the formation water, and the clay content of the permeable bed.

Description

Therefore, the SP log is commonly used to detect permeable beds and to estimate clay content and formation water salinity. The SP log can be used to distinguish between impermeable shale and permeable shale and porous sands.

Miscellaneous Caliper A tool that measures the diameter of the borehole, using either 2 or 4 arms. Nuclear magnetic resonance Nuclear magnetic resonance NMR logging uses the NMR response of a formation to directly determine its porosity and permeability , providing a continuous record along the length of the borehole.

Neither of these are moveable in the NMR sense, so these volumes are not easily observed on older logs. On modern tools, both CBW and BVI can often be seen in the signal response after transforming the relaxation curve to the porosity domain.

Note that some of the moveable fluids BVM in the NMR sense are not actually moveable in the oilfield sense of the word. Residual oil and gas, heavy oil, and bitumen may appear moveable to the NMR precession measurement, but these will not necessarily flow into a well bore. SNL records acoustic noise generated by fluid or gas flow through the reservoir or leaks in downhole well components.

Noise logging tools have been used in the petroleum industry for several decades. As far back as , an acoustic detector was proposed for use in well integrity analysis to identify casing holes.

This technique provides similar well information to conventional wireline logging but instead of sensors being lowered into the well at the end of wireline cable, the sensors are integrated into the drill string and the measurements are made in real-time, whilst the well is being drilled.

This allows drilling engineers and geologists to quickly obtain information such as porosity, resistivity, hole direction and weight-on-bit and they can use this information to make immediate decisions about the future of the well and the direction of drilling.

This mud telemetry method provides a bandwidth of less than 10 bits per second, although, as drilling through rock is a fairly slow process, data compression techniques mean that this is an ample bandwidth for real-time delivery of information.

A higher sample rate of data is recorded into memory and retrieved when the drillstring is withdrawn at bit changes.

High-definition downhole and subsurface information is available through networked or wired drillpipe that deliver memory quality data in real time.

These advanced technical methods use non destructive technologies as ultrasonic, electromagnetic and magnetic transducers. There are some advantages and disadvantages to this memory option.

Oh no, there's been an error

The tools can be conveyed into wells where the trajectory is deviated or extended beyond the reach of conventional Electric Wireline cables. This can involve a combination of weight to strength ratio of the electric cable over this extended reach. In such cases the memory tools can be conveyed on Pipe or Coil Tubing. The type of sensors are limited in comparison to those used on Electric Line, and tend to be focussed on the cased hole,production stage of the well.

Although there are now developed some memory "Open Hole" compact formation evaluation tool combinations. These tools can be deployed and carried downhole concealed internally in drill pipe to protect them from damage while running in the hole, and then "Pumped" out the end at depth to initiate logging. Other basic open hole formation evaluation memory tools are available for use in "Commodity" markets on slickline to reduce costs and operating time.

In cased hole operation there is normally a "Slick Line" intervention unit. This uses a solid mechanical wire 0. Memory operations are often carried out on this Slickline conveyance in preference to mobilizing a full service Electric Wireline unit.

Since the results are not known until returned to surface, any realtime well dynamic changes cannot be monitored real time.Although there are now developed some memory "Open Hole" compact formation evaluation tool combinations.

We also want to plan drill hole targets using the arc scene or related tools. Most porosity logs use either acoustic or nuclear technology. The primary functions of the drilling or petroleum engineer are to ensure that the right operational decisions are made during the course of drilling and testing a well, from data gathering, completion and testing, and thereafter to provide the necessary parameters to enable an accurate static and dynamic model of the reservoir to be constructed.

Memory operations are often carried out on this Slickline conveyance in preference to mobilizing a full service Electric Wireline unit. Where is the difference between an CSLA object and a collaboration of objects to do a certain job? Since the results are not known until returned to surface, any realtime well dynamic changes cannot be monitored real time. South Texas, US where there is what is called a "Commodity" Oil service sector, where logging often is without the rig infrastructure.

Therefore, the SP log is commonly used to detect permeable beds and to estimate clay content and formation water salinity.
