The scanning, proofing, and assembly of the historical chart
books project finished during the summer 2002. By the beginning
of November, final artwork revisions came back, and the 7-CD
compilation was sent out for printing. The collection includes 4
CD’s of Schlumberger chart books and interpretation handbooks
dating all the way back to Document #1 published in 1947. Two
CD’s cover Atlas chart books including its predecessor companies
PGAC and Lane Wells, plus companies acquired by Atlas over the
years such as Birdwell. One CD of Halliburton books finishes the
collection, also including predecessor companies Welex and
Gearhart. We scanned all books in their entirety to provide an
archival collection. Also, we determined it was impossible to
figure out which charts are exact duplicates of older charts and
which have minor revisions or even errors, so we captured
everything! The books were scanned at 200 dpi and color charts
were scanned in color, so that prints made from the CD should be
similar quality to a Xerox copy from the original. Thanks to
everybody that helped out on this project!
