The topics above are offered by ICDP's Operational Support Group (OSG), a small team of scientists, engineers and technicians to assist in project planning and management. 

Downhole Logging

Consulting and service

Logging Truck

The offered support reaches from evaluation and support of planning and management of downhole logging programs within ICDP proposals to the actual performance of entire or parts of borehole logging sessions. Our assistance in preparation of borehole logging programs comprises check of availability of equipment & expertise, equipment acquisition and cost assessment. If desired the OSG can carry out downhole logging measurements with a special equipment fitting most ICDP operating conditions.

Test facility

KTB Deep Crustal Lab

We manage and operate the KTB site in Bavaria, southern Germany. KTB was the German Continental Deep Drilling Program initiated by Rolf Emmermann between 1987 and 1994 (see history). Nowadays the KTB site with its two close adjacent boreholes (4000 m & 9100 m) is used as a deep lab with a complete downhole logging infrastructure including a workshop taylored for wireline logging.

Testing

The KTB site allows in-situ high temperature/pressure testing of logging and downhole monitoring equipment and even long-term experiments for low costs. Klick here for more information.
