Abstract: Background

The spatial distribution of D-D “induced γ-ray source” is significantly different from that of entity γ-ray source, and it is more susceptible to the influence of various formation factors.


This study aims at the spatial distribution of D-D induced γ-ray sources under different conditions in density logging.


Firstly, based on the principle of D-D controllable source density measurement, calculation model of density logging using D-D source was built. Then the spatial distribution characteristics of γ-ray sources under different formation conditions such as various hydrogen index, lithology and salinity, were simulated by using MCNP. Finally, all these influencing factors and simulation results were analyzed and summarized.


Among these factors, the hydrogen index has the greatest impact on the spatial position of induced γ-ray source, and particularly, when formation hydrogen index varies within the range of 0~0.1, the spatial positions of capture γ-rays will change significantly. Comparatively, formation lithology and salinity have greater impact on the intensity of induced γ-rays than on the spatial distribution of these γ-rays. For formations of different lithologies, the types and contents of main elements in the formations are different.


The spatial distribution of induced γ-ray source spatial position and intensity are susceptible to the influence of various formation factors. This research provides the basic data for correcting the effects on D-D induced γ-ray source.
