Californium-252 in Oil & Gas Well Logging Applications
Californium-252 (Cf-252) has the second-highest atomic mass of any element and is the only isotope that spontaneously emits neutrons – an ideal property for the identification and evaluation of materials and geological formations.
In this eBook, we discuss the advantages and applications of californium-252 in oil well logging and borehole projects, such as:
- How Cf-252 saves a significant amount of time during well logging processes, streamlining and making them instantaneous
- The power of Cf-252 as a data source, providing detailed insights about rock characteristics, potential liquid presence, and borehole dimensional properties
- Additional advantages for well logging applications that are unique to Cf-252, and how FTC is able to customize these neutron sources to your equipment and requirements
