Basic Well Logging and Formation Evaluation

Basic Well Logging and Formation Evaluation

The textbook is addressed to students of applied geosciences and petroleum engineering. Subject are the fundamental techniques of well logging/borehole geophysics and the interpretation of measured data (formation evaluation). Examples with an exercise part (sandstone reservoir, shaly sand interpretation, complex mineralogy of a carbonate reservoir) help to understand the different methods and algorithms. The user will learn reservoir properties (porosity, saturation, fluids, permeability, capillary pressure), the physical background of well logging methods and the response with respect to reservoir characterization (physical principle, primary information from logs), rules for optimal log combinations, basic equations and models, fundamental techniques of log interpretation. *NOTE: Free...
