Thorsten has over 25 years of wireline logging experience in both open-hole and cased-hole environments for Baker Hughes.
He has worked as a general field engineer, engineer in charge and training instructor for new hires. He has global experience having worked in North Africa (Tunisia, Algeria), the Middle East (Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Israel, Iraq), Asia (Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia, Bangladesh, China, East Russia) and Europe (German, Italy, Croatia and the North Sea).
His work to date has included a variety of well logging including Exploration, Development, Production, and Geothermal wells with vertical, slanted, and horizontal borehole paths. He has extensive experience in basement logging and associate services. Key services in which he has high levels of expertise include:
Open-hole logging: Resistivity, acoustic, nuclear services, electric & acoustic imaging, pressure testing & ﬂuid sampling, straddle packer, magnetic resonance, percussion & rotary coring (the latter basic).
Cased-hole logging: Production logging (PLT, Atlas & Sondex), “Polaris” (tractor or tubing conveyed production logging in horizontal wells), pulsed neutron devices, cement bond logging, casing inspection, perforating and setting services, pipe recovery and fishing operations.
Thorsten has been working with one&zero since 2018, bringing his extensive experience to bear on the planning, preparation and execution phases of wireline operations. His depth of knowledge has been invaluable in growing our database of QA/QC checks for Baker Hughes operations.
