Acoustic ringing effect mitigation for oil well sonic logging

Abstract

This paper presents a method to suppress the ringing effect for an acoustic transmitter used in oilfield wireline logging. The removal of ringing is desirable for acoustic logging as too much ringing can interfere with the processing of formation data. The existing approach uses a strong passive damper to damp out the vibration energy. This, however, limits… (More)
