Array Induction Fully Calibrated (AIFC)
This is an abbreviation for a well log acquired after or during drilling. You could find this abbreviation AIFC in your log evaluation software or any (ASCII) log files provided by the logging company. Array Induction Fully Calibrated is the offical name for this log. This log is not used too often in the industry. The values of this log represent the formation conductivity as measured by a device capable of taking measurements at various combinations of resolution, depth of investigation, azimuth; such surveys allow detailed investigation of the invasion profile.This log usually has the unit 'Conductivity'. This is the quantity of electricity transferred across unit area per unit potential gradient per unit time. In isotropic material, it is the reciprocal of Resistivity. Sometimes called Specific Conductance.
Data from this log can be used to investigate the conductivitty of the formation. Similar logs are listed below:
