Applications for Spectral Neutron Logs

  • Indentify the fluid behind borehole casing in reservoirs.
  • Pinpoint oil/water, gas/water and gas/oil contacts even in low resistivity pay zones.
  • Find bypassed hydrocarbons in mature fields. Analyze hydrocarbon content before plug and abandonment.
  • Evaluate coal beds as clean or dirty. A high Chlorine reading means high ash content.
  • Evaluate coalbed methane.
  • Potentially locate iron, copper, and other mineral elements with large capture cross-sections that have distinctive gamma ray signatures.
