This Reference Manual covers topics needed to understand and analyze data for non-petroleum applications, such as water wells, CO2 storage and monitoring, geothermal wells, igneous and metamorphic rocks, hydrogen generation and accumulation, lithium extraction, helium wells, non-metallic minerals, surface and borehole methods for metallic minerals, and potash evaluation wells.

Numerous examples are used to illustrate results from each of these “special cases” in the wonderful realm of Petrophysics in the Green Economy

RF-11: 132 pages, 11 chapters, table of contents, computer-ready math, access to all META/LOG spreadsheet software.
