GATHERING DATA AT THE
WELL AND IN THE LAB
Reference Manual covers topics needed to understand how petrophysical data is acquired in
the field and in the laboratory. Conventional and special core
analysis are described in detail. Special techniques for total
organic carbon, coal, coal bed methane, gas shale and oil shale
are described. Numerous examples are used to illustrate
results from lab reports.
FACTS: 148 pages, 23 chapters, table of
contents, computer-ready math.
LEARN how petrophysical data is acquired anf measured.
REVIEW the examples to see how these data could bring new
insights to your reservoir evaluation.
UNDERSTAND the technical and ecoomic benefits of competent
petrophysical evaluation of your assets.
SUITABLE FOR: all geoscientists, geotechs, engineers, managers
