Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Microinduction sensors are used in the Oil-Based Mud Dipmeter Tool to measure formation conductivity through nonconductive mud or mudcake. The sensor consists of small transmitter and receiver coils mounted in a pad. An extensive research effort involving sensor response modeling, laboratory experiments, and signal processing contributed to the development of these new sensors.
