2012 International Conference on Electrical Insulating Materials and Electrical Engineering, EIMEE 2012
MAY 25-27, 2012
Shenyang, Liaoning, China
The new Electromagnetic Imaging Tool (EMIT) is introduced in this study. It is also described that the basic inspection theory, system structure and applications. The EMIT can determine whether metal loss or casing damage has occurred internally or externally. A 3D casing image can be supplied, including horizontal, vertical profile. The experimental results show that the EMIT has a "high-resolution" for MFL method in the casing well because of the steel brush structure. The minimal diameter of the inspection hole is 4 mm, and the thickness determination error of casing wall is 0.4 mm. A number of examples from oilfield are presented.
