What’s new in well logging and formation evaluation ///

New developments in cased-hole logging include near-well acoustic imaging, digital slickline, downhole video, multi-detector pulsed-neutron logging and nonradioactive proppant mapping. New developments in well and reservoir monitoring include improvements in fiber-optic permanent monitoring systems, distributed acoustic sensing and distributed chemical sensing. New developments in coring and core evaluation include a new sponge-core system, review papers on the state-of-the-art in core evaluation, geochemical evaluation, a spectral gamma-ray core scanner, and X-ray tomography core imaging. New developments in wellsite evaluation include real-time cavings monitoring, and portable and hand-held rock analyzers. New developments in laboratory techniques include cuttings-based well-log calibration, quantitative fluid analysis and permeameters.
