Well Log Analysis
Definition - What does Well Log Analysis mean?
Well Log Analysis 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 analysis is used to study the zonal correlation, Isopach mapping, and determine the depth and thickness of the zone.
Petropedia explains Well Log Analysis
Well logging is used to correlate similar patterns of electrical conductivity. It is increasingly becoming an important aspect in the oil and gas industry as it helps in evaluating hydrocarbon accumulations. Well log analysis 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.
