The Baker Atlas high-definition lateral log HDLL tool [10] acquires 8 potential and 16 first differences, and computes 14 second differences. A cual box with a range of resistors capable of setting values from 1 through a ohm-metres is used for calibration and verification. For electrode tools focused using guard electrodes, the depth of investigation increases only as the square root of the length of the guard electrodes.

Electrode resistivity devices –

Three independent, borehole-corrected resistivity measurements with appropriately chosen depths of investigation contain enough information from the formation to reliably solve for R t using this model. Because it has no bridle, it does not suffer from Groningen effect. Duncan Cogswell, Executive Director at Borehole Wireline, is a qualified geologist who has worked in borehole geophysical logging for mineral exploration, mining and groundwater since Conversely, a laterolog tool is preferred when R xo is less than R t.

In addition, the current from each azimuthal electrode is focused passively by the currents from its neighbors.

This avoids horns or oscillations caused lateropog irregular tool motion and ensures that the measurements are always exactly depth-aligned. Most of the current returns to the A2 electrode near the azimuthal array. If casing has been set in or below the resistive zone, it accentuates the “short circuit” effect of the borehole, and the Groningen effect is more pronounced. Latefolog mild Groningen effect may be difficult to identify from the LLd curve alone.

The SFL device measures the conductivity of the formation near the borehole.

A constant-power measuring system ensures measurement accuracy over a wide range of resistivities from 0. This creates a negative potential at the far reference electrode used as the potential reference for the laterolog measurement. The “geometric factor” relates the effect of a portion of formation on the logging tool reading to its position relative to the tool in an infinite homogeneous medium. Its dimensions are optimized to achieve similar performance as an ARI sonde with a tool that is only approximately one-half its overall length.


Drillpipe conveyance produces the same effect, with the drillpipe becoming the “short circuit. It graphically compares the relative contributions of the invaded zone to the tool responses and their relative depths of investigation. The data are usually stored downhole for later laterplog, although a compressed image and selected button data may be transmitted to the surface in real time together with the ring and bit resistivities and gamma-ray measurements. Laterolog tools are resistivity devices, which are most accurate in medium- to high-resistivity formations.

These resistivity measurements are repeated using current from the lower transmitter. The Schlumberger high-resolution laterolog array HRLA tool consists of five laterolog arrays with different depths of investigation. Like the ARI tool, the azimuthal array of the HALS makes deep and shallow resistivity measurements around the borehole with a 1- or 2-ft [0.

The apparent resistivities Duql through RLA5 are all sensitive to the formation, becoming progressively deeper in investigation. It uses small electrodes that can be combined with the dual-induction tool to provide shallow-investigation data for invasion evaluation.

It has a particular application to induction logging tools, but pseudo-geometrical factors are a useful comparative tool for other resistivity devices. The measurements are taken while the tool is stationary and take approximately a minute per station. Modern interpretation methods include 2D inversion after the curves are digitized and iterative forward modeling for when they are not digitized.

The current is injected into the casing and returns to an electrode in the earth some distance from the casing. A cylindrical focusing technique CFT is used to measure and compensate for this distortion by restoring the cylindrical geometry of the equipotential surfaces in front of the measurement electrodes.


The intermediate measurements lateroog used to derive the radial-invasion profile. The LLs measurement uses different current paths laerolog does not suffer from the Groningen effect.

The relation of the curve to the bed is not clear at all. The six modes are focused by a combination of hardware and software focusing.

Laterolog devices see the more resistive zones, and induction tools see the more conductive zones. Conductivity in the borehole has a strong influence on an induction measurement, but little influence on a laterolog measurement.

Resistivity logging involves the measurement of electrical properties of the rock. Although most of the lwterolog returns through the casing, some small fraction of it will leak off from the outside of the casing and will return through the earth. Resistivity logging probes involves the injection of electrical current through a current electrode and measurement of the voltage drop at a potential electrode after passage through the rock.

This is achieved by regulating the currents generated by the upper and lower transmitters for zero axial current flow at the ring monitor vual, which avoids current flow along the borehole and focuses the ring current into the formation. The voltage difference is now measuring the resistance of the casing, R 1. Nevertheless, the conventional ES logs consisting of SP; in. A current generator on the surface is connected to an electrode at the top of the tool.

Deep measurements associated with the longest sensor spacings are used in evaluating the uncontaminated formation resistivity structure. The LLs measurement shares most of the electrodes with the deeper measurement. In the early s, a new dual laterolog that had an additional azimuthally segmented current electrode was introduced. These are used as inputs to a 2D inversion to solve for formation resistivities.
