Borehole logging refers to examining a particular area of ground to determine whether or not there may be valuable minerals and materials. As oil and gas companies have become more and more dependent on finding materials before anyone else, the field has become more and more competitive.
The borehole variety refers to a technique that requires minimal disturbance to a logging area. A small hole is made and then the log is lowered into it and its richness is determined by the resistivity of the rock or sediment. This data is then compiled by high-quality software to help determine if it is worthwhile to go ahead with a full excavation.
The form of borehole logging depends on the company and also the environment where the log is taking place. For instance, one probe may not do the same job in a bed of water than it would when on a dry surface so this is something to ask your equipment supplier before you undertake any applications.
Despite geophysical logging being around for over a century and the basic technique remaining the same, there are few fields of industry that have grown more in the 21st century than this as many companies across the globe are becoming more and more competitive. This being said, the technology found within the equipment has seen some great advancements, which make examining the samples much quicker and easier today.
Sometimes best practice when it comes to borehole logging is to not purchase all of the equipment and tools yourself, particularly if you’re a small business or one that is just starting out. Instead, many professionals opt to rent the equipment for specialist suppliers who can then also assist with any queries or particulars that they’re after.
