Topical Description:

Imaging can link the wellbore logs to the geology, rock fabric and fracture network. Combining wellbore imaging with core and log data delivers a potent unified analysis for formation assessment and completion decisions. While it has been considered a premium logging service, recent advances has expanded the technology include WBM and OBM, while reduced costs in both WL and LWD environments.
