Getting the Most Out of Your Resistivity Logs

Getting the Most Out of Your Resistivity Logs

When collecting well logging data, part of the information that you are likely to gather includes resistivity logs. Resistivity logs can help your business detect certain anomalies (e.g. relative hardness/permeability) that may merit further investigation. However, whether or not anomalies are accurately detected may depend on the interpretation of your logs. This is why it is important to hire reliable professionals to help with analysis and interpretation of resistivity logs.

Experience is Vital

Resistivity logs help to detect the flow of electricity through the material surrounding the borehole. Different substances will have different resistances to electricity, thus it is common for boreholes to have several levels of resistivity depending on the area analyzed. If you don’t understand what you are looking at when evaluating this information, you need to hire someone who does. Professional borehole technicians that organize and interpret data can help you understand what your resistivity data means, enabling you to put that information to good use.

Make Your Data Useful

Well logging provides a lot of useful information. If you have any questions about the accurate interpretation of your resistivity logs—or any of your other data—hire experienced borehole analysts to help you interpret the data you have collected. Accurate interpretation will enable you to learn even more about the land that you are studying.
