IPL Integrated Porosity Lithology

IPL integrated porosity lithology service brings one-tool efficiency to measuring neutron porosity, natural gamma ray spectrometry, density, and the photoelectric effect. For thin-bed analysis, the IPL service’s toolstring usually includes the ARI azimuthal resistivity imager, which provides resistivity logs and images at a vertical resolution of less than 1 ft.

The resulting dataset provides 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 environments would be difficult to evaluate with only traditional wireline measurements.
