From a few basic sensors, production logging tools have evolved to a
family of tools each with sensors designed to make measurements that, once
interpreted together, provide accurate flow rates for multiple phases and
determine precisely where the various fluids are entering (or exiting) the
borehole. This development and application of new production logging
technologies is much needed, as well trajectories continue to grow in
complexity, progressing from vertical to deviated and horizontal and posing new
challenges in completion design and flow assurance.
The aim of Fundamentals of Production Logging is to provide a
comprehensive understanding of production logging sensors, interpretation
techniques, applications, and job planning. From the most basic wells through
intelligent completions with three-phase flow, the goal remains the same: to
achieve an accurate interpretation.
