Wireline Logging

Wireline Logging :


Wireline Logging : Wireline logging is the practice of continuously collecting and recording data from a borehole during the drilling process. This usually occurs in the context of oil and gas exploration, where wireline logging generates valuable information for making decisions about how and where to drill, and when to stop drilling. Logs become part of the permanent data record associated with a well, with the company storing them in case they are needed for future reference. Usually, a wellsite geologist supervises wireline logging.



To collect a wireline log, sensor tools on long cables are inserted into the well. People can choose to log data while lowering or raising the sensors, depending on the situation. Wireline logging provides continuous feedback, measuring properties like electrical conductivity, density, and so forth. These differ from measurements of samples taken on the surface, like the mud samples from the drill a geologist will analyze to collect more information about the geological formation.

People can use wireline logging to generate a profile of the formation they are drilling, and this data can be part of the process of deciding when to stop drilling. Wireline logs from neighboring wells are available for comparison to learn more about what to expect in the well. Hitting a deposit of oil or gas may be a good sign, but it could be a small pocket, rather than a deep and productive deposit. The geologist needs to be able to make practical decisions about drilling to increase productivity.
