In this episode, host Brock Yordy covers hole logging. Darren asks: “What does it mean to log a “significant” change?” Good question.

“You are the book to that hole,” Yordy says. “You are the author creating what the downhole conditions look like before we get into doing geophysical logs or anything else.” 

But, like everything, more logging is more labor intensive, so how do you balance the client expectations, the need for downhole information and project scope?
