Radial Analysis Bond Log (RAL)

Maintain production and avoid water production from channels

The Baker Hughes Radial Analysis Bond Log™ (RAL™) offers improved cement evaluation capabilities compared with conventional cement bond logs. The RAL service combines 8 radially distributed receivers with a 5-foot [1.5-m] receiver to provide detailed analysis of casing formation bonding. You can interpret the results immediately and easily.

The RAL service simplifies interpretation by displaying the full 360-deg. circumference of the surveyed casing section with a graphic 2D map. It immediately highlights the location and extent of any cement channels present.

Because the RAL service provides more information in a highly usable format, well operations can continue and remedial efforts can begin with complete confidence. The service can be run with an optional gamma-ray and neutron tool, including a temperature probe, to improve correlation.
