Advances in sonic tool design and data quality are improving our ability to characterize mechanical and fluid properties around the borehole and deep into the formation. This article highlights sonic-logging applications including measurements in ultraslow formations, radial profiling to identify near-wellbore damage, anisotropy analysis for designing completion operations, enhanced permeability estimation and high-resolution imaging far from the borehole.
