What is well logging?

Oil Well Logging

Well logging is a means by which oil and gas companies gather detailed information about the layers of rock they drill through. The well logs can be created using a variety of tools for collecting seismic, electrical, electromagnetic, or radar signals sent from the borehole to a receiver. Well logging can also be based on visual inspection of sample brought up from the borehole. Specialists can then analyze this data to make the judgment with greater certainty of whether or not hydrocarbons are present in the well.

Therefore, it is critical to gather and record as much information as possible throughout the drilling process in order to make educated business decisions regarding the well. Well logging is a means by which oil and gas companies gather detailed information about the layers of rock they drill through. They can then analyze this data to make the judgment with greater certainty of whether or not hydrocarbons are present. If the data looks promising, the company can continue on and complete the well. However, if the well is not promising, the process can be halted and the well abandoned before incurring the additional cost of completing the well.
