Little of the current is able to return to the remote electrodes through the highly resistive formation, with the majority flowing in the conductive mud in the borehole. This avoids horns or oscillations caused by irregular tool motion and ensures that the measurements are always exactly depth-aligned.

The effect [6] is an anomalously high resistivity reading that occurs for approximately ft [30 m] below a thick, highly resistive bed such as the thick evaporitic Zechstein caprock at the Groningen field.

The high-resolution LLhr curve reads almost as deeply into the formation as a deep laterolog LLd curve, particularly when R yo is less than R t. The point of measurement is midway between A and M. The leakoff current is determined by measuring dial voltage drop along a section of the casing. Laterolog tools are resistivity devices, which are most accurate in medium- to high-resistivity formations. It uses small electrodes that can be combined with the dual-induction tool to provide shallow-investigation data for invasion evaluation.

Therefore, when R xo is greater than R tan induction tool is preferred for R t determination because laterolog tools will be affected mostly by R xo. There are four focused-resistivity measurements incorporated in the RAB tool. If automatic corrections are not available, log-interpretation charts provided by the service company are used to manually correct the log readings for these influences. When the GVR tool is positioned directly above the bit, the resistivity measurement has a resolution of approximately 2 ft [61 cm], which is usually adequate for dhal drilling precisely at casing or coring depths.


Electrode resistivity devices

During the first quarter century of well logging, the only electrical surveys ES available were the resistivity logs made with so-called lateral and normal devices plus the spontaneous potential SP.

The Schlumberger cased-hole formation resistivity CHFR tool has three sets of four arms that contain electrodes that are forced into contact with the inside of the casing.

HALS laterolog and lateropog induction openhole logs.

The borehole corrections must always be made first, followed by bed-thickness corrections and finally invasion corrections of the determination of R tR xoand d i. All signals are measured at the same time and logging position. The current is injected into the casing and returns to an electrode in the earth some distance from the casing. A Hz alternating current passes through the toroidal-coil lower transmitter that is 1 ft from the bottom of the tool, inducing a voltage in the collar below.

A calibration box with a range of resistors capable of setting values from 1 through a ohm-metres is used for calibration and verification. Both the measure current and measure voltage V 0 are varied and measured, but their product power I 0 V 0 is kept constant.

These are used as inputs to a 2D inversion to solve for formation resistivities. He has extensively travelled throughout the world and is now based in South Australia. Induction tools are conductivity-sensitive devices, which are most accurate in low- to medium-resistivity formations.

Because the DLL measure current is AC albeit very low frequencyskin effect reduces the volume around the well where the measure and focusing current can flow. This leakoff current forms the basis for the CHFR measurement. The first resistivity devices were the normals and laterals.

Commercial tools were introduced in by Schlumberger [14] and Baker Atlas. For electrode tools focused using guard electrodes, the depth of investigation increases only as the square root of the length of the guard electrodes.

Many charts called departure curves were published to aid in interpretation of the ES logs. This creates a negative potential at the far reference electrode used as the potential reference for the laterolog measurement. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published. However, in layered formations, there is a tendency for current to flow preferentially in the more conductive beds and avoid the more resistive beds. The apparent resistivities RLA1 through RLA5 are all sensitive to the formation, becoming progressively deeper in investigation.

The measurement is therefore sensitive to borehole size and shape and to eccentering of the tool in the borehole.
