Application of Resistivity-Tool-Response Modeling for Formation Evaluation

Hezhu Yin

 

Understanding resistivity-tool response and resistivity-log interpretation for formation evaluation is vital for the matching of the reconstructed deep-reading resistivity logs with the field log curves.
AAPG Archie 2 introduces the fundamental concepts required. Resistivity-logging-tool physics and measurement accuracy are reviewed, and forward- and inverse-modeling resistivity-tool responses are introduced. In the case studies presented, well-deviation, shoulder-bed, bed-thickness, borehole, mud-resistivity, and invasion effects on restivity-log responses are discussed.
This volume has been written for geoscientists and engineers working with and interpreting resistivity logs, petrophysicists and reservoir engineers integrating resistivity-based and capillary-pressure-based quantitative calculation of formation water saturation, and formation evaluation specialists.
