Cores and Core Logging for Geoscientists by Graham A Blackbourn

By Graham A Blackbourn

The former version of this publication has been commonly followed across the world by means of the petroleum and mining industries and via geotechnical engineers as an authoritative advisor to be used on the wellsite, within the laboratory or place of work. This re-creation has been introduced up to date and comprises glossy advancements in coring ideas and center dealing with. All features of cores are coated together with slicing and restoration; wellsite dealing with and logging; popularity of coring harm; laboratory research; logging and sampling; and, maintenance and storage.In this paintings, logging and interpretation are handled intimately, encompassing structural and engineering investigations as well as sedimentology. Emphasis is laid all through on these beneficial properties most crucial to the within your budget improvement of geological assets. as the technique is handled greatly, the reader with a historical past in sedimentology, geotechnical engineering, petrophysics or a similar topic is ready to positioned the foundations and strategies of center stories into perform. As such, this publication will turn out priceless for these operating with cores and somebody who makes use of info derived from them.

Sample text

Another wireline sampling tool consists of two diamond cutting wheels that penetrate the sidewall and move down the formation to produce a long triangular-sectioned slice of rock, which is retrieved in a sampling chamber in the body of the tool. 5 inches wide. This particular tool, however, is not widely used. 8 Electric wireline logging This section is included here since, although not a drilling method, wireline logging commonly constitutes an integral part of the drilling programme, especially in deeper wells.

When comparing cores with electric wireline logs, it is important to consider the resolution of the wireline tool. A resistivity tool, for example, essentially measures the resistivity between two points, which could be, say, 1 m apart. The resistivity is therefore summed over an interval rather than measured at a point. The resolution of this tool would be of the order of 1 m, which means that, in the absence of additional information, the thickness of a high-resistivity coal bed, for example, could be measured to an accuracy of about 1 m.

In addition to this preparation for the arrival of the core, the geologist must monitor the coring progress and be prepared to discuss any operational difficulties with the driller. The cuttings produced by a coring bit are usually finer than tri-cone bit cuttings, but they should still be examined regularly in case of poor core recovery. uk Whittle Publishing - 170mm x 240mm - Fonts: Times JOBNAME: 0000−Whittles PAGE: 4 SESS: 23 OUTPUT: Fri Nov 14 10:11:44 2008 SUM: 27FB58AE /production/whittles/booksxml/corelogging/03 Cores and Core Logging for Geoscientists Fig.
