Our suite of well integrity services offers you the right answers for early detection of faults or defects in your downhole systems and components. Our extensive range of instruments and recommendations enables you to decide if remedial work is required and, if so, to minimize interruptions in production.
Cement evaluation: zonal isolation
Our cement evaluation tools ensure hydraulic isolation between reservoir layers by measuring the bond between the casing and the cement pumped in the wellbore annulus. Before final well completions are made, the zones being completed must be analyzed for hydraulic isolation to prevent possible crossflow between reservoir zones behind the casing. Cement evaluation logs offer results to confirm zonal isolation and help you decide whether remedial work is required before any completions are attempted.
For your jobs that require 0.7-in. to 1-in. casing in high-stress environments, the Segmented Bond Tool™ (SBT™) offers you the industry-exclusive ability to accurately measure your cement bond and present this on an easy to read 360 deg. cement map.

Casing inspection: measuring corrosion and mechanical wear
Pipe-string failure caused by corrosion or mechanical defects can occur at anytime in the life of a well. To protect your investment, regular inspection of the production tubing and casing using our pipe evaluation services offers early detection of problem areas and allows for timely planning of remedial action.
The High-Resolution Vertilog™ (HRVRT™) service delivers the highest-resolution electromagnetic casing inspection instrument in the industry. The HRVRT 360 deg. defect map accurately pinpoints the location size of a casing defect whether internal or external.
Other Baker Hughes casing inspection services provided are
Our Acoustic Cement Bond Log™ is a valuable source of data about the effectiveness of the cement sheath surrounding the casing.
The Digital Magnelog™ service is an electromagnetic multifrequency, multispacing casing inspection service to detect wall thickness changes in single or multiple casing strings.
Imaging calipers show when casing is in serviceable condition or in need of remedial work.
Our Radial Analysis Bond Log offers improved cement evaluation capabilities compared with conventional cement bond logs.
The Segmented Bond Tool service quantitatively measures the cement bond integrity in six angular segments around the casing.
Our Vertilog™ casing inspection services use magnetic flux-leakage measurements to identify and quantify internal and external corrosion defects.
Our Integrity eXplorer™ cement evaluation service provides accurate information to help operators make critical decisions that impact well integrity.
The ChannelView™ service concurrently provides two independent cement channel evaluations to detect well integrity issues that are typically overlooked.
