Comparing uncorrected and corrected bottom-hole temperatures using published correction methods for the onshore U.S. Gulf of Mexico

USGS Publication: Data Release
Wireline logging temperature readings are known to be imprecise and need to be corrected to more accurately show what the formation temperature is. One issue with correcting logging temperatures is what correction factor to use. Because there are so many correction factors and they are based on different types of data and locations choosing a correction factor for a particular...
