- Less fast formation intereference in cement mapping
Conventional dual spaced 3ft - 5ft CBL is an economical way to evaluate a cement job. However, if it shows less than perfect bonding, additional information is needed to correctly evaluate the cement bond.
Titan’s Radial Incremented Bond (RIB) tools provide the conventional CBL-VDL receivers plus additional directional radial receivers that can measure circumferential data necessary to determine if there is channeling in the cement, or to indicate low compressive strength.
Titan’s unique 1.5ft transmitter to radial receiver spacing provides highly directional information without the averaging effect seen in traditional 3ft spacing, and is less susceptible to fast formation interference. The amplitude display of each directional receiver forms a detailed 360° cement map that can be used to identify channeling, voids and other bonding irregularities.
