Well Log Interpretation
Definition - What does Well Log Interpretation mean?
Well Log Interpretation is a process which provides complete details about the background of well logs. It gives a sneak peek of variant well logging methods that are used to derive some petrochemical properties of hydrocarbons. It important as it familiarizes the drilling team with the applications of well logs. Moreover, it aims at detection and evaluation of new productive horizons for the formation of well logs. Well log Interpretation is used to study the zonal correlation, Isopach mapping, and determine the depth and thickness of the zone.
Petropedia explains Well Log Interpretation
Well logging is used to correlate similar patterns of electrical conductivity. It is becoming an important aspect in the oil and gas industry as it helps in evaluating the hydrocarbon accumulations. Well Log Interpretation uses various tools to describe reservoir properties such as mineralogy, saturation, hydrocarbon exploration and porosity. Moreover, with the help of the interpretation water saturation can be calculated. The main objective of well logging is to determine the hydrocarbon saturation in the well. The process is used to describe various topics such as formation of water resistivity, mechanical properties of rocks and logs of gamma rays.
