Wireline (borehole) geophysical logging (WGL) is often considered a valuable complementary service and source of geo-data for ground investigations, deep and shallow lithological formation characterisation, and geo-engineering parameterisation.

Balazs Rigler details that WGL forms an essential part of Fugro’s recently developed Ground Risk Management Framework (GRMF). Quite a few well established WGL methods, which also could add great value to ground risk assessments are still not utilised for geotechnical ground investigations.

In his presentation, Balazs focuses on the benefits and applicability of key and state of the art wireline geophysical logging methods and related geo-data solution packages in geotechnical, hydrogeological, and geological contexts.
