Sonic Scanner Acoustic Scanning Platform

Sonic Scanner platform applications

Accurately evaluating stress-dependent formation properties—which is critical in shale reservoirs—and the integrity of the cement bond begins with comprehensive 3D acoustic measurements made axially, azimuthally, and radially in both open and cased holes.

Sonic Scanner platform case studies

Fully 3D acoustic characterization delivers geophysics, geomechanics, and petrophysics information about the formations and well integrity to reduce drilling costs, improve recovery, and maximize productivity across the well life cycle.

Sonic Scanner platform tool

The advanced tool configuration integrates multiple monopole and dipole transmitters with 13 receiver stations for simultaneously obtaining cement bond and formation measurement logs at enhanced vertical resolution and coherence and a high signal-to-noise ratio.

Sonic Scanner platform logging theory

Regardless of formation type and slowness, the Sonic Scanner platform overcomes conventional acoustic measurement barriers through its wide frequency range, multiple monopole and dipole transmitter-receiver spacings, and full characterization.
