Welcome to Cardinal Surveys Company's Home Page. Our intent is to construct a web site
that will be useful to any petroleum professional in the oil and gas industry who is
interested in production logs, injection profiles, radioactive tracers, radiation safety,
and after stimulation logs. You will find information on preparation, general procedures,
safety, and regulatory concerns.
This site was designed to be compatible with both Netscape Navigator and Microsoft
Explorer, and now Mozella Firefox. Graphics have been kept as small and simple as possible to reduce dead time at
tool production logging - slick line or coiled tubing (CT) conveyed, high
Production Log Analysis, including calibrated
Water Cut, Absolute Fluid Entry Volumes
- ANNULUS TRAC-III
- Annulus Production Logging on pumping wells. The 7/8" O.D.
logging tool string allows us to travel down the tubing annulus and document producing
conditions on a real time basis.
- FLOWING TRAC-III
- Production Logging on flowing wells.
- High pressure tagging system that injects radioactive material down stream of all pumps,
blenders, and manifolds.
- GAMMA-TROL II
- Temperature and Gamma Ray Log used to determine the placement of well stimulations and
- INJECTION PROFILE
- Used by the oilfield industry to determine the destination of injected fluids in
secondary and tertiary flood projects. Profiles are also used by chemical and other
industries to confirm wastes are being injected safely in appropriate zones in hazardous
- INTERFACE LOG
- Proven method for accurately controlling placement of profile modification sealants and
- GAMMA SpecTrol
- Spectral Gamma Ray logging used to determine the placement of well stimulations and
treatments traced with multi-isotopes.
- Controlled injection rates while bottom-hole pressures are
measured and recorded are then plotted to show the Formation Parting
- PRESSURE TESTING (Pressure Transient
- Pressure Tools, Real-Time and Memory Gauge / Pressure analysis (build
up, fall off)
Velocity Calculator - Convert BPD to Linear Velocity!
logs: Zone-by-zone breakdown of production in wells
on rod pump artificial lift, even small casing sizes. 4 1/2" casing with 2
3/8" tubing have been successfully logged. Don't make guesses or
assumptions about your well, use the best available technology to scientifically
determine your well's performance. See link
above, Annulus Trac-III.

Spectral Gamma Ray Stimulation Evaluation:
Multi-channel gamma spectrum logging. Recognizes scandium, antimony, and iridium used
to trace stimulation fluids. May be run in conjunction with temperature logs. Merged and
analyzed data available in field immediately after logging passes are completed. Tool
size: 1 ¼ in. May be run as soon as stimulation treatment is completed. New,
improved analysis algorithm and simplified telemetry.
Coalbed Methane Wells:
Production logs of coalbed methane (CBM) gas
The Annulus Trac III log is used to identify the actual productive zones,
and verify downhole mechanical configuration. In a recent application, 10
wells were logged using the exclusive 7/8"
O. D. logging tools. Modification of the down-hole configuration of one
well paid for the cost of logging all 10 wells in less than one month!
Further workovers are planned to increase
production for the lease based on the diagnostic results from the Trac III logs.
If you expect a continuing firming in the natural gas market place,
now is the time to diagnose and plan workovers for coal-seam wells!
Cardinal Surveys has more experience in logging
coalbed methane wells while under actual producing conditions than anyone in the
Food for Thought
When NASA first started sending up astronauts, they quickly
discovered that ballpoint pens would not work in zero gravity. To combat the
problem, NASA scientists spent a decade and $12 billion to develop a pen that
writes in zero gravity, upside down, underwater, on almost any surface including
glass and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to 300 Celsius.
The Russians used a pencil.
