  • Formation Testingby Wilson C. Chin; Yanmin Zhou; Yongren Feng; Qiang Yu; Lixin Zhao

    Wiley 2014; US$ 200.95

    Traditional well logging methods, such as  resistivity, acoustic, nuclear and NMR, provide indirect information related to fluid and formation properties.  The ?formation tester,? offered in wireline and MWD/LWD operations, is different.  It collects actual downhole fluid samples for surface analysis, and through pressure transient analysis, provides... more...

  • Measurement While Drilling (MWD) Signal Analysis, Optimization and Designby Wilson C. Chin; Yinao Su; Limin Sheng; Lin Li; Hailong Bian; Rong Shi

    Wiley 2014; US$ 195.00

    Trade magazines and review articles describe MWD in casual terms, e.g., positive versus negative pulsers, continuous wave systems, drilling channel noise and attenuation, in very simple terms absent of technical rigor.  However, few truly scientific discussions are available on existing methods, let alone the advances necessary for high-data-rate... more...
