Delta-T Compressional Borehole Compensated (Depth Derived) (DTBC)

This is an abbreviation for a well log acquired after or during drilling. You could have found the code DTBC in your log evaluation software or your corporate datastores. The abreviatin stands for 'Delta-T Compressional Borehole Compensated (Depth Derived)'. The usage of this log is well established.

This log displays readings of the time it takes for a compressional wave to traverse a fixed distance; reciprocal of Compressional Velocity.

Furthermore, this can be explained by looking at the interval transit time (The travel time of a wave over a unit distance, hence the reciprocal of wave velocity).

This log usually has the unit 'Acoustic Slowness'. This is the time interval per unit length, Delta-T, necessary to attenuate a traveling acoustic wave. Applies to all types of Delta-T: Compressional, Shear and Stoneley.

Data for this log is produced by a tool that uses a acoustic logging technique and can be used to investigate the acoustic slowness of the formation. Similar logs are listed below:
