From memory years ago on wells around Baton Rouge area, temps would be running 350+ at depth, needed special equipment to log (survey) wells.

I worked for Baker Hughes INTEQ for 7 years making MWD/LWD tools. Those hot holes play havoc on the electronics. Lots of failures downhole.

Worked for *Big Blue*, we weren't a hot hole location most of the time, but would catch a *Hell Job* every now a then.
Hated the heat test routine to prep. for a job.
What was even worse was when they decided to push regular equipment beyond ratings, lots of overtime before and after the fact, LOL.

Yep. anything over 290 seems to shorten tool life, and the pulsers seem to go out even quicker.
