Geothermal Well Logging in Northern Nevada

Two weeks ago, Truck 800 adventured into northern Nevada to do high-temperature Geophysical logging.  This expedition was in support of a company exploring for conditions suitable to geothermal well production.  The logs collected were Natural Gamma, 3-Arm Caliper, Temperature, and Acoustic Televiewer (ABI-43).  The high-temperature ABI-43 tool was pushed near its upper temperature limit and collected a detailed image of the fracture network in the rock formation.  This data was used by the client to try and pinpoint temperature anomalies in the well and how it related to individual fractures/features in the formation.  We look forward to returning and doing more work on this project in the future, so stay tuned for further information!
