Glossary:Cement bond log

Jump to navigation Jump to search

A sonic log that determines the top of the cement column and estimates the quality of the cement bond between the casing and the formation. Works on transmission of a sound wave and identifies areas that conduct the wave and those that do not (free pipe ringing). Communication is likely if CBL>10% of unbonded mv reading. Communication is unlikely is CBL <5% of unbonded mv reading and bond length >10 ft (3 m).
