Wireline Depth

True along hole depth is used to define the position of geological horizons and equipment positioned along a well bore. Depth measurement is used to define the geometry of the well and is the reference for a multitude of measurements made along the well bore. Depth is used to define the geological and petrophysical attributes of the formations drilled. Depth is also used to specify where a variety of related services are performed during the lifetime of the well bore.
