Characterization of Volcanic Reservoirs Requires Comprehensive NMR Tests
This paper discusses a study undertaken to gain better understanding of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) characteristics of volcanic reservoirs with different lithologies.
Pulsed-Neutron Comparison of Open- and Casedhole Wells: An Alaskan Case Study
This paper compares the results of gas identification and lithology identification using pulsed-neutron spectroscopy in openhole and casedhole environments.
Norwegian Firm Adds Smarts to Offshore Coring
Coring is essential to offshore exploration programs—but sometimes cores are taken from the wrong formation or return to surface in poor condition. One firm thinks it can solve these costly issues with a first-of-a-kind coring device that uses logging instruments that add accuracy and integrity.
Doing Better By Doing Less: Using Well Logs to Target Productive Rock
The rising cost of fracturing offers a significant incentive for finding ways to avoid unproductive rock. One entrepreneur says he can use standard well logs to target the slice of rock likely produce most, and avoid the rest.
Formation-Evaluation Log-Off Results for Coalbed-Methane-Field Development
Coalbed methane development can require a large volume of wells, but the costs of logging can be prohibitive, so alternate formation-evaluation solutions are being evaluated. This paper compares state-of-the-art mining logging technology with conventional oil-and-gas approaches.
Unconventional Measures For Shale Reservoirs
One of the biggest ways to lower the cost of production from shale would be to identify zones that are productive, or not, before fracturing them.
