Abstract

We present a novel method of formation conductivity estimation based on an induction logging tool with multicomponent transmitters and receivers. We describe a modeling study of the tool prototype with tilted transmitting and receiving coils. Theoretically, this induction system can be considered as a triaxial multisensor array of controlled polarization. The sensitivity analysis and induction tool response simulations are based on dyadic Green's function calculations in the layered media and the integral equation method. We also consider the spatial resolution of induction logging with tilted coils and its ability to delineate formation properties and geometry.
