Logging Runs


Logging string 1: DIT/APS/HLDS/HNGS


The wireline heave compensator was not operational, due to electrical problems.


Bottom-hole Assembly


The following bottom-hole assembly depth is as it appears on the logs after depth shift to the sea floor. As such, there might be a discrepancy with the original depth given by the drillers onboard. Possible reasons for this discrepancy are ship heave and drill string and/or wireline stretch.


DIT/APS/HLDS/HNGS: Bottom-hole assembly at ~44.5 mbsf.




Depth shift: No depth match was necessary as only one logging run was recorded. The original logs have been depth shifted to the sea floor (- 110 m). The amount of depth shift corresponds to the water depth observed on the logs and differs 0.5 m from the "bottom felt" depth given by the drillers.


Gamma-ray processing: HNGS data have been processed to correct for borehole size and type of drilling fluid.


High-resolution data: Neutron porosity data were recorded at a sampling rate of  5.08 cm.


Quality Control


During the processing, quality control of the data is mainly performed by cross-correlation of all logging data. Large (>12") and/or irregular borehole affects most recordings, particularly those that require eccentralization (APS, HLDS) and a good contact with the borehole wall. The hole was very enlarged below  as indicated by the caliper tool which was completely open at 19 inches. As no correction could compensate for such large hole, HLDS and APS measurements in the lower section should be used with caution.


Data recorded through bottom-hole assembly should be used qualitatively only because of the attenuation on the incoming signal.


Hole diameter was recorded by the hydraulic caliper on the HLDS tool (LCAL).
