downhole logging

Our downhole logging infrastructure is optimized for slimhole logging conditions. It is available as service only. Some equipment for big holes on request.

Data acquisition & Processing

Most of our logging instruments are operated with the data acquisition software Geobase  (Antares). The very small and lightweight data acquisition system GEOBASE (Antares) consists just of a laptop and a hand portable tool interface panel. The system can be adapted to operate also many alien logging tools (modifications by the manufacturer Antares). The original raw logging data has the RLF-format that can be read with Geobase only. Output in ASCII and LIS/DLIS is possible. The SlimWave geophone chain is operated with WaveControl/ ToolsPilot (Sercel).

We mainly utilize the WellCAD (ALT) software for data processing and some special modules of Geobase. WellCAD generates its own plot file formats. These can be viewed with WellCAD Reader which can be downloaded free of charge. Data output file formats are ASCII, LAS and LIS. The KTB/GFZ developed software CREOS is used for a semi-automatic matching of core and log structures for spatial core orientation purpose.
