ARI Azimuthal Resistivity Imager

As a component of triple- and quad-combo toolstrings, the ARI azimuthal resistivity imager makes 12 high-resolution directional measurements to provide deep oriented resistivity measurements, which measure past the invaded zone, in addition to standard deep and shallow resistivities. With a vertical resolution of less than 1 ft, ARI imager logging is particularly effective for thin-bed analysis.

The resulting triple- and quad-combo datasets provide the minimum information required for basic formation evaluation answers, such as porosity and saturations. This basic insight is readily expanded by combining the data with additional measurements. Integrated interpretation employs advanced workflows, the multidisciplinary expertise of our interpretation geoscientists and engineers working with you as needed, and software such as the Techlog wellbore software platform to maximize the value of your logging data. The result is the fullest possible understanding of complex lithologies, such as carbonate, shaly sand, and shale reservoirs.
