Title: Use of Temperature Measurements for Cementation Control and Correlations in Drill Holes

Author(s): Alexander Deussen, Hubert Guyod (2)


After comparing the early and the modern methods of temperature investigations in drill holes, the authors review briefly the main applications of these measurements to oil wells.

The possibilities and limitations of two specific techniques are discussed, namely: location of cemented zones, and correlation between different wells.

The location of the cement behind the casing by thermometric measurements is quite feasible and commercially successful, provided such measurements are made immediately after the completion of the cementing job, and preferably before any circulation of mud has taken place.

Although temperature measurements can not be expected to replace the electrical methods of logging wells, they may be used successfully in certain instances to correlate wells already cased where no other method of investigation can be applied.
