Slim hole Logging for Your Industry

Are you looking to make a start in the gas and oil industry but need some background information before you take the plunge? Then it could be worthwhile reading up on some of the advantages of slim hole logging for all your operations.

As an instrument for logging which has been around for many decades, slimhole logging’s status as the premier in safe and efficient testing techniques remains undisputed. Since 1927, slimhole has excelled at providing excellence ever since the Schlumberger brothers first patented it.

Known as an ‘electrical survey’ back then, it has been modernised in terms of name over the years but the same initial functions still remain intact. Seen as one of the most revolutionary advancements in the logging industry, the Schlumbergers have been lauded as visionaries in their field because of their great work.

At its essence, slimhole logging works in a very simple way yet it still yields highly efficient and productive results. As you’d expect, a small hole is excavated in a test area before a probe is then lowered into aforementioned opening.

A probe will then be lowered into the region, which upon reaching its destination, will then be used as the conduit to test resistivity. Resistivity entails the measurement of the electrical current to determine whether the subject is sufficient enough to be logged.

In days gone by, it would be a case of guess work and plenty of human calculations, making it a far more drawn out and laborious process. However, after the innovation of items such as microloggers, it’s a less strenuous activity and one that is measured to the finest detail. Using acoustic and imaging formats, your surface software can remotely detect the contents of your logging area resulting in less necessity of manpower and time consumption.

In the event of a successful logging operation, you will no doubt be encumbered with precious materials and this is highly advantageous to those either in the industrial or scientific sectors.
