Core-Log Integration: Practical Approaches Using Core Data To Enhance Well Log Analysis
Cores serve many uses. The justification for taking a core usually starts with the desire to acquire engineering data for enhancing the reservoir model, geological data for defining the depositional environment, and assessing the potential of formation damage mechanisms. Well log calibration is another important use of core data. From simply correcting the density log using a core-measured grain density to measuring electrical properties for more accurate water saturation calculations, core data is used to create added value to a Petrophysicist’ calculations. Besides core data, cuttings have been successfully used to assist in log calibration/calculations. Several practical applications will be examined to show the value of core-log and cuttings-log integration.
Raymond is a senior technical advisor with Weatherford Laboratories. He has been involved in core analysis his entire business career, serving in various roles from analyst to management to technical advisor. Currently, he is creating a 15 session training program for Weatherford technical staff encompassing all services provided by the Labs Business Unit.
