What is Wireline Logging?

Wireline logging is also often referred to as well logging. It is the collection of data within and surrounding a borehole. The oil and gas/mining industries often uses this type of logging to learn more about the geological characteristics inside/near a well. This in turn may aid the company in identifying zones of rich oil/mineral production. Similar scenarios in the water production/well industry can be achieved through wireline logging.

How It’s Done

After a borehole is created, a logging tool is lowered into the hole to collect data. This could be any of a variety of instruments that are designed to take pictures, video, and record properties such as temperature, fluid conductivity, pressure, and more. Once the data is collected, it is used in conjunction with other geological information to better characterize the rock formation and help the client make more informed decisions.
