Frequently Asked Questions



Q. Where can I get information about the processing performed at each hole?

A. The Documents section of each Index Page contains detailed information about the processing performed for each dataset at a particular hole.


Q. I am not familiar with logging tool acronyms. Where can I find their definition?

A. The list of all the acronyms used in the program is available in the Documents section of the Index Page (see previous question). The list of the definitions of all the data files of each hole is available as a File Dictionary link at the top of the Index Page of each dataset.


Q. I am searching for the data types of a specific hole and I have come up with page-long lists of individual files. How do I get a list of the data types available at a specific hole?

A. To get a list of data types instead of individual files, you must click on the active link for the hole in the ‘Results:Hole’ or ‘Results:Files’ page. This will take you to the hole Index Page.

Q. I noticed that not all data types are listed in the Results:Files page.

A. A complete list of the data types of a specific hole is available on the Index Page of the hole. To access the Index Page, click on the hole number in the Results:Files page (see previous question).


Q. Is any industry-standard format available in this database?

A. The DLIS (Digital Log Interchange Standard) is available for the original data collected in each hole. Data in this format are available only through the Index Page of a specific hole. In addition, LAS (Log ASCII Standard) is available for the logging data collected with non-Schlumberger tools.
