dipmeter

dipmeter

[′dip‚mēd·ər]
(engineering)
An instrument used to measure the direction and angle of dip of geologic formations.
An absorption wavemeter in which bipolar or field-effect transistors replace the electron tubes used in older grid-dip meters.

Consider the Dipmeter Advisor (Smith and Baker 1983), started at Schlumberger in the early 1980s and based on the knowledge of the legendary oil finder, Al Gilreath, shown in figure 7.
And the Dipmeter Advisor was both data driven, converting raw signals to patterns, and model driven, using rules to classify stratigraphie and tectonic features from the patterns (Smith and Baker 1983).
El presente trabajo plantea un modelo de paleoflujos en subsuelo y superficie basado en la metodologia utilizada en algunos trabajos como Berg (1998), Rubiano (1998) y Delgado y Rubiano (2008) donde a partir de los buzamientos medidos por el registro de dipmeter se identificaron las principales fuentes de aporte de sedimentos en determinadas areas, actividad tectonica y cambios en la paleogeografia.
Por ello, mientras se cuente con mayor informacion para el analisis estadistico de los datos, mejor se complementaran las dos metodologias para minimizar la incertidumbre y mas confiables seran los resultados; tambien es importante anotar que la mayoria de los pozos del area cuentan con el registro de dipmeter.
At first, 3D seismic reflectivity did not agree with the dipmeter, as "big smiles" hid the information under the salt dome.
From the structural point of view most of the wells where dips have been measured, either on dipmeter or cores, show very low values, 0-15[degrees], so well thickness should be close to real.

La seccion balanceada fue construida a partir de informacion sismica 2D, registros de pozo dipmeter y bioestratigrafia.
The accurate stratigraphic correlation, achieved through detailed logging of the quartzites in the drill hole and the 20 degree dip of the strata, which has been determined in a down-the-hole dipmeter survey, has provided critical data in the basin modeling and in the siting of a third drill hole, which AfriOre has proposed be drilled.
Dipole Sonic, Dipmeter and Compensated Magnetic Resonance (CMR) logs were run to further evaluate the character of the Hiram Brook formation within the gross natural gas pay interval.
In addition to the standard suite of common logging runs, special care was undertaken to locate and include mud and dipmeter logs.
