Overview for Geophysical Well Logging and Petroleum Reservoir Evaluation
The book Geophysical Well Logging and Petroleum Reservoir Evaluation comprehensively addresses the theory and technical aspects of plethora of open hole and cased hole methods in simplistic and user friendly way limiting the mathematical formulation stricitly to the minimum.
The first eight sections of the book extensively deal with basic logging tools through a variety of logging methods, interpretation, procedures and finally into the advances of well logging such as imaging tools and their powerful application for visualizing high resolution pictures of borehole.
Sections five and six running into 35 pages and wide coverage of logging tools and interpretation aspects for assessing the key petrophysical properties of hydrocarbon reservoirs, literally take the readers through a journey into the rock physics of the earth. The extended sections from 9th through 12th provide valuable knowledge of Hydrocarbon Traps, Naturally Fractured Reservoirs, Coal-bed Methane and finally Hydrocarbon Estimation.
The book undoubtedly enriches every reader a science graduate earth sciences or a professional geoscientist in comprehensively understanding geological approach to Petrophysics.
