Acoustic Borehole Imager


The Acoustic Borehole Imager produces high-resolution acoustic images of the wellbore in water-base or oil-base mud. The images are used to identify dipping beds, fractures, and other features intersecting the borehole. Critical information on borehole stability and breakouts can be derived from the accurate borehole cross section measured by the tool.


  • Fracture identification including drilling-induced fractures
  • Differentiation of closed and open fractures
  • Borehole profiling and calculation of cement volume
  • Stress analysis and borehole stability studies
  • Mud weight selection
  • Structural and bedding analysis
