IMPACT OF LOGGING SPEED ON SEDIMENTARY ROCK IDENTIFICATION BASED ON LONG AND SHORT DENSITY LOG
Keywords:Long spaced density, Short spaced density, Geophysical log, Logging speed
: Logging speed has an influence on data quality of logging result because each rock has its own
characteristics. Sedimentary rocks with low mechanical properties have specific geophysical characteristics,
therefore in logging activity, it is necessary to determine the optimum speed to obtain the best data quality.
This research aims to evaluate optimum logging speed for sedimentary rocks to determine the logging speed
that is suitable for the characteristics of sedimentary rocks. The research was conducted by logging one of the
drilling holes using GDDC probe. The logging speeds used in the measurement were 3, 4 and 5 m/min. For
each measurement, data values of long spaced density (LSD) and short spaced density (SSD) were obtained.
The data was evaluated by statistical analysis using Friedman test. The result shows that LSD data result at
logging speed of 3 m/min is different from the data at the speed of 4 and 5 m/min; while the SSD data result at
logging speed of 3, 4, and 5 m/min are different from each other. A logging speed of 4-5 m/min is recommended
for logging activity on clastic sedimentary rocks that have low mechanical properties.
