GLOG-LU (Logging tool)

Model id: Robertson Geologging Focussed Electric Probe with natural gamma


  • focussed electrical resistivity
  • total natural gamma

Purpose: formation electrical resistivity

Description: A focussed resistivity measurement with excellent vertical resolution and reasonable depth of investigation. The guard log works well when high borehole fluid salinity and high formation resistance cause the16" and 64" Normal resistivity logs to give inaccurate results. The probe includes a central current-source electrode mounted between two guard electrodes, maintained at the same potential by internal electronics. Current from the central electrode is constrained to a thin disk by the presence of the guards and returns to the cable armour above a 10m insulated section. The potential of the central electrode with respect to a surface voltage-reference stake and the measured current are combined by a down-hole microprocessor to calculate the apparent formation resistivity.
