Our Logging Equipment, Tools And Technology

We currently have 6 modern logging vehicles capable of reaching depths up to 10,000 feet (approximately 3,050 meters) that employ the latest in Acoustic/Optical Televiewer technology as well as all the standard instruments used by Southwest Exploration.

Improved processors and head speeds on these tools deliver clarity and image resolution second to none in the industry.

It’s higher temperature ratings, much faster processors and better acoustic head puts it far out beyond the past models produced by ALT and others. The 2nd Generation ABI-43 tools are currently being developed by ALT and we should be field testing them soon!

In addition, we have acquired the latest in Acoustic Sonic tools (3 and 4 Receiver units), SPT North-seeking Gyro technology (, and downhole video cameras ( Pressure and temperature ratings are higher than any previous tools.
