Smoothed Magnetic Detector Blade Face (SBFM)

This is an abbreviation for a well log used in the oil and gas industry. The code SBFM is a unique identifier to recognize this particular log and can be found in any (ASCII) log files provided by the logging company. The code stands for 'Smoothed Magnetic Detector Blade Face'. This log is not often acquired after (or during) drilling a well.

This log helps to evaluate the azimuth of a sensor on a logging device, used to determine the orientation of the device.

So basically this is a measure of the horizontal angle measured clockwise from true North. (Also referred to as True Bearing.) Occasionally azimuth will be specified relative to some other reference.

This log usually has the unit 'Plane Angle'. This is the angular displacement between two lines extending from the same point, measured in the plane of the two lines.

Data from this log can be used to investigate the azimuth of the sensor. Similar logs are listed below:
