Tools

pickup

1. n. [Formation Evaluation]
The depth at which the tool string is picked up off the bottom of the well during a wireline logging survey. Pick-up can be observed by an increase in cable tension and by the start of activity in the log curves. When the logging tool is lowered to the bottom of the well, it is common practice to spool in some extra cable. When the cable is pulled back out, the tool remains stationary before it is picked up off the bottom. During this time the log readings are static but the depth, which is recorded by the movement of the cable, is changing.
