Downhole Geophysical Logging

The Impax Group has geophysicists and technical officers on staff who can conduct down-hole geophysical logging using a variety of logging tools.  Our in-house capability for down-hole geophysical logging offers the most comprehensive array of groundwater and exploration tools of any comparable group in Australia.

Downhole geophysical logging capabilities are as follows:

  • Design of geophysical logging programs;
  • Data acquisition using one of our dedicated logging units, which are mobile and can be set up at any drilling location.  A wide variety of logging tools can be used by our logging units, including (but not limited to):
    • Gamma tools;
    • Resistivity tools;
    • 3 arm caliper;
    • Temperature / flow;
    • Auto-logging winches to 1,000m
  • Collation and interpretation of captured data using industry standard software (well cad); and
  • Assessment of data and incorporation of data into the drilling program.
