For StandardWITSML v2.0

This chapter provides brief definitions and an overview of logs and their use in the oil and gas exploration, production, and drilling operations.

It then explains the WITSML Log data object, key concepts, and how it has been designed to work. The Log data object underwent major redesign in v2.0. The main driver for this design change was so that realtime data could be streamed using the Energistics Transfer Protocol (ETP).
