The benefits of Borehole logging

  • Provides information about the sub-surface that may be unobtainable from surface methods or sampling
  • Measurements are made in situ
  • Repeatable time lapse measurements to observe changes
  • Continuous data, unlike sampling
  • Only means of obtaining data when there is no information available
  • Helps with the design and location of water wells
  • Allows the vertical and horizontal extrapolation of data derived from boreholes
  • Supplements geologists’ or drillers’ logs and geophysical surveys
  • Key part in geotechnical, environment and exploration programmes
