Casing Inspection

  • Richard M. Bateman


Inspection of the mechanical state of the completion string is an important aspect of production logging. Many production (or injection) problems can be traced back to mechanical damage to, or corrosion of, the completion string. A number of inspection methods are available, including:


Eddy Current Cathodic Protection Flux Line Receiver Coil Pole Piece
