July 2017 FESAus Technical Meeting : Bond, Bond, Where Art Thou?
by Paul Pillai, Weatherford
The most critical log that a Petrophysicist can run in a well is the cement bond log. The art of interpreting cement-bond logs is not new as the basics has not changed in several decades but the requirement to interpret them have increased multiple times over. With the recent spate of incidents identifying this as one of the overlooked process safety considerations for well integrity, this is now a requirement by the statutory bodies.
As Petrophysicists, we are normally tasked to find the best tool for such a job, whether in new wells or in producing wells. As the cement bond logs comes in various forms, from basic acoustic logs, to sector logs, to ultrasonic image logs, each having their unique application and benefit, this presentation provides an overview of the various types of tools and logs, together with examples to help in understanding and interpreting them.
Registration deadline: Friday 7th July 2017
