Abstract:

THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A TECHNOLOGY WHICH WILL ELIMINATE A MAJOR SOURCE OF ERRONEOUS DATA FROM ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT AND COMMONLY USED DOWNHOLE LOGGING TOOLS--THE 14 MEV PULSED NEUTRON SOURCE. BASED ON AN INNOVATIVE NEUTRON DETECTOR CONCEPT, THIS TECHNOLOGY WOULD ALLOW FOR THE NORMALIZING OF DATA DERIVED FROM PULSED NEUTRON SOURCES BY MEASURING THE STRENGTH OF THE UNCOLLIDED FLUX WHILE THE PULSED SOURCE IS STILL IN THE WELL BORE. THE DOWNHOLE ENVIRONMENT IS PARTICULARLY HARSH FOR THE ELECTRONICS AND DELICATE INSTRUMENTS WHICH ARE NEEDED TO MEET THE DEMAND FOR IMPROVED GEOPHYSICAL DATA. FOR THIS REASON, THE DOWNHOLE NEUTRON FLUX MONITOR HAS BEEN DESIGNED TO BE RUGGED ENOUGH TO OPERATE RELIABLY DOWNHOLE.
