Tool Information


In 2005 the Borehole Research Group of the Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory designed a temperature tool that could acquire data in combination with a Schlumberger tool string or as a stand-alone tool in memory mode. Schlumberger designed and provided the telemetry interface hardware. The tool measures borehole temperature and axial acceleration of the tool string, as well as power supply and reference voltages and internal temperature'. The MTT uses low-temperature electronics, housed in a dewar flask to permit use up to 250° C for limited periods of time. A stand-alone MTT can be used in high-temperature conditions in the absence of a high-temperature telelemetry tool string.



Data Processing


The temperature data acquired with the MTT are depth-shifted and depth-matched during the processing of the standard log data. For a complete account, refer to the Standard Data Processing Notes.
