This paper describes a survey conducted in an underground gas storage well that had excess annulus pressure. The integrated well survey including Spectral Noise Logging (SNL), High Precision Temperature (HPT) Logging and pulse electromagnetic defectoscopy determined the flow geometry in the cemented annuli of the well and identified leaking tubing and casing collars. The paper provides a detailed analysis of well logging data and workover recommendations. Analysis of information on flow and leaks obtained by the survey suggested that the well did not have to be suspended.
