The Schlumberger SonicScope multipole sonic-while-drilling service is a new LWD service that provides multipole measurements to deliver consistent and reliable compressional and shear data. It is the only service with a dedicated mode for acquiring Stoneley waveforms while drilling, which ensures high-quality data before washouts can develop. The service combines monopole and quadrupole measurements to deliver data in a range of applications, regardless of formation slowness. These data area fundamental to pore pressure monitoring and wellbore stability evaluation, especially when drilling in deep water.
