Functions and Features
Casing collar locator CCL include : wound coil which is winding on a soft iron core and 2 permanent magnets. when it passed casing collar, it will have approximately 1Hz frequency signal in the coil's 2 ends , after the treatment of the electic circuit , it will be added to the single-core cable ,then it will be sent to the ground system, with a certain treatment and be recorded , working with the CBL logging, providing accurate depth.
Acoustic sound CBL cement bond logging tool CBL is a dual-emission & double receiving sound system , the source distance is: three feet , 5 feet. Well surface system record: transmission time TT (3 'Sourceistance), casing signal amplitude , full waveform shape(variable density recording VDL ,5' Source distance) at the same time, to check the quality of well cementing and find missing and channeling
Instrument measuring principle
The main task of the cement bond logging tool is check the cement bond quality between the casing and formation, including:
cementing quality of first cemented surface - cementation situation of cement and casing ,
cementing quality of second cemented surface - cementation situation of cement and formation .
Cement bond logging tool can measure 4 curves: CCL curve, GR curves, acoustic amplitude curves and variable density curves.
The basic principle is as below :the cement and mud 's acoustical impedance have a big difference , it fluence attenuation of sound waves when transmitting along the tube axis , so to Reflect the Cementation quality of the cement and casing . the cement bond logging tool have an acoustic transmitter and a receiver ,the transmitter and receiver have a distance . When the acoustic transmitter emitted sound waves , the receiver receives sigals,the signals include : casing wave ,formation wave , mud wave.
For cased well, when well casing ,the outside(Peripheral) is cement; if is not well casing , the outside(Peripheral) is mud , or part is mud/slurry . Since the acoustic impedance of mud have a big difference with casing , so the first wave amplitude of casing is closely realted with cementation Quality.
In the acoustic amplitude logging, the non-cemented casing section is called free casing; if with Cement consolidation,Casing wave amplitude will be Obviously decreased.
Therefore, the amplitude(range) of casing wave attenuation or attenuation measurements ,it could show the Cementation condition of cement and casing ,and indicating a high cement returns.
Most people are interested in variable density logging ,because it reflects the second cemented surface, that is cementing condition of cement and formation .
the second cementing condition will affect Formation wave Strength of Receiving acoustic signals .Because acoustic energy that from cement to formation , it is decided/depend by Acoustic coupling condition between the two .Through signals-strength analysis : the casing wave and the of the formation wave ,can easily see the following three conditions:
1. For freed casing: casing wave amplitude is big , wave formation is weak.
2. For the casing and cement, cement and formation are cemented with good situation: casing wave amplitude is small, the formation wave is big.
3. For casing and cement consolidation is with well condition, cement and formation is unconsolidated : casing wave's amplitude is small, the formation wave 'samplitude is s,some times you can not find/discover formation wave.
Thus, the wave formation strength of the receiving signal is a measurement of the quality of the second cemented surface. see the Whole Well, casing wave's arrival time is basically stable and unchanging, But due to difference of formation instrument that encountered , the formation wave 's arrival time will Obviously change .This feature of casing wave and formation wave is providing two good constions when Variable density logging to identify and distinguish the two waves.
Natural gamma logging is to measure formation 's natural radioactivity.
formation 's natural radioactivity is caused by the Uranium, thorium, potassium and other radionuclides of the rock .aggregation of these Radionuclide in the formation is related with Depositional environment of formation .Therefore, the measurement of natural radioactivity can learn something about the formation geological questions. Whether casing wellor openhole well ,both could use Natural gamma well logging . Natural gamma logging tool can be combined with any other logging tools to downhole . Therefore, another important use of natural gamma logging is for stratigraphic correlation. In the cement bond logging, the main purpose of natural gamma logging tool is to regulate the depth .
CCL logging is used to determine the location of casing collar.
