Reservoir rock type determination is one of the main parameters for simulation and prediction of the hydrocarbon reservoir behavior. Hence, it is of great importance to use a method which is capable of determining the rock type accurately.
A major application of petrophysics is in studying reservoirs for the hydrocarbon industry. Petrophysicists are employed to help reservoir engineers and geoscientists understand the rock properties of the reservoir, particularly how pores in the subsurface are interconnected, controlling the accumulation and migration of hydrocarbons.
A major application of petrophysics is in studying reservoirs for the hydrocarbon industry. Petrophysicists are employed to help reservoir engineers and geoscientists understand the rock properties of the reservoir, particularly how pores in the subsurface are interconnected, controlling the accumulation and migration of hydrocarbons. A key aspect of petrophysics is measuring and evaluating these rock properties by acquiring well log measurements — in which a string of measurement tools are inserted in the borehole, core measurements — in which rock samples are retrieved from subsurface, and seismic measurements.
These studies are then combined with geological and geophysical studies and reservoir engineering to give a complete picture of the reservoir. While most petrophysicists work in the hydrocarbon industry, some also work in the mining and water resource industries. The properties measured or computed fall into three broad categories: conventional petrophysical properties, rock mechanical properties, and ore quality.
Petrophysical studies are used by petroleum engineering , geology , mineralogy , exploration geophysics and other related studies. The Society of Petrophysicists and Well Log Analysts SPWLA mission is to increase the awareness of petrophysics, formation evaluation and well logging best practices in the oil and gas industry and the scientific community at large.
Most petrophysicists are employed SS to compute what are commonly called conventional or reservoir petrophysical properties. These are:. Lithology : A description of the rock's physical characteristics, such as grain size, composition and texture.
Water saturation : The fraction of the pore space occupied by water. Permeability : The quantity of fluid usually hydrocarbon that can flow through a rock as a function of time and pressure, related to how interconnected the pores are. Formation testing is so far the only tool that can directly measure a rock formation's permeability down a well.
Thickness of rock with enough permeability to deliver fluids to a well bore. Reservoir models are built upon their measured and derived properties to estimate the amount of hydrocarbon present in the reservoir, the rate at which that hydrocarbon can be produced to the Earth's surface through wellbores and the fluid flow in rocks.
In the water resource industry, similar models are used to compute how much water can be produced to the surface over long periods of time, without depleting the aquifer. Some petrophysicists use acoustic and density measurements of rocks to compute their mechanical properties and strength.
They measure the compressional P wave velocity of sound through the rock and the shear S wave velocity and use these with the density of the rock to compute the rocks' compressive strength , which is the compressive stress that causes a rock to fail, and the rocks' flexibility , which is the relationship between stress and deformation for a rock. Converted-wave analysis is also used to determine subsurface lithology and porosity. These measurements are useful to design programs to drill wells that produce oil and gas.
The measurements are also used to design dams, roads, foundations for buildings, and many other large construction projects. They can also be used to help interpret seismic signals from the Earth, either man-made seismic signals or those from earthquakes.
Bore holes can be drilled into ore bodies for example coal seams or gold ore and either rock samples taken to determine the ore or coal quality at each bore hole location or the wells can be wireline logged to make measurements that can be used to infer quality. Some petrophysicists do this sort of analysis. The information is mapped and used to make mine development plans.
Coring and special core analysis is a direct measurement of petrophysical properties. In the petroleum industry rock samples are retrieved from subsurface and measured by core labs of oil company or some commercial core measurement service companies. This process is time consuming and expensive, thus can not be applied to all the wells drilled in a field. Well Logging is used as a relatively inexpensive method to obtain petrophysical properties downhole.
Measurement tools are conveyed downhole using either wireline or LWD method. An example of wireline logs is shown in Figure 1. The rocks emitting less radiation have more yellow shading. The detector is very sensitive and the amount of radiation is very low.
In clastic rock formations, rocks that have smaller amounts of radiation are more likely to be coarser grained and have more pore space, rocks with higher amounts of radiation are more likely to have finer grains and less pore space.
The second track over in the plot records the depth below the reference point which is usually the Kelly bush or rotary table in feet, so these rocks are 11, feet below the surface of earth. In the third track, the electrical resistivity of the rock is presented.
The water in this rock is salty and the salt in the water causes the water to be electrically conductive such that lower resistivity is caused by increasing water saturation and decreasing hydrocarbon saturation.
Both quantities are given as a fraction of the total pore space. The fifth track shows the fraction of the total rock that is pore space, filled with fluids. The display of the pore space is divided into green for oil and blue for movable water. The last track is a representation of the solid portion of the rock. The yellow pattern represents the fraction of the rock excluding fluids that is composed of coarser grained sandstone.
The following definition and petrophysics model are a typical shaly sand formation model which assumes: 1. Shale is composed of silt, clay and their bounded water which will not flow. Hydrocarbon are stored only in pore space in sand matrix. The pore space in shale which is filled with bounded water is excluded. Swe — Effective shale corrected water saturation. Vsh — Volumetric fraction of shale.
This includes medium to very fine silt plus clay and the shale bound water. Volumetric fraction of pore space in shale. These pore space is filled with bounded water by definition.

Dry-mouthed, Phoebe watched her team move to the seventeen. The King nodded to the Elven Hunters, reassuring them that he was all right, and they returned to their watch. The penetrating blue eyes swept past his son to Allanon. All of its color had drained away.

Дэвид… - тихо простонала. Ответа не последовало. Она открыла глаза, не в состоянии даже протянуть руку. Простыня на его половине кровати была холодной. Дэвид исчез. Значит, приснилось, подумала Сьюзан и села в кровати. Комната в викторианском стиле, сплошь кружева и антиквариат - лучший гостиничный номер в Стоун-Мэнор.
Прошу меня извинить, - пробормотал Беккер, застегивая пряжку на ремне. - Мужская комната оказалась закрыта… но я уже ухожу. - Ну и проваливай, пидор. Беккер посмотрел на нее внимательнее. К ней как-то не шло сквернословие - как неуместны сточные воды в хрустальном графине. Но, приглядевшись, он убедился, что она вовсе не такая изысканная особа, как ему показалось вначале. Веки припухли, глаза красные, левая рука у локтя - вся в кровоподтеках с синеватым отливом.
- Стратмор кивнул в сторону лаборатории систем безопасности. - Чатрукьян уже, надеюсь, ушел. - Не знаю, я его не видела. - Господи Иисусе, - простонал Стратмор. - Ну прямо цирк. - Он провел рукой по подбородку, на котором темнела полуторасуточная щетина. - А что Следопыт.
Его пальцы набирали слова медленно, но решительно. Дорогие друзья, сегодня я ухожу из жизни… При таком исходе никто ничему не удивится. Никто не задаст вопросов.
Снова воцарилось молчание. Стратмор покачал головой, отказываясь верить тому, что услышал. - Не может быть, чтобы Грег Хейл был гарантом затеи Танкадо.
Однако в данный момент у него был перерыв и он поглощал пирог с сыром и перцем в круглосуточной столовой АНБ. Джабба собирался взять третий кусок, когда зазвонил мобильный телефон. - Говорите, - сказал он, быстро проглотив пирог. - Джабба, - проворковала женщина в ответ. - Это Мидж.
- Он не очень любит Агентство национальной безопасности. - Какая редкость! - саркастически парировала Сьюзан. - Он участвовал в разработке ТРАНСТЕКСТА. Он нарушил правила.
Сьюзан представила себе Хейла в западне, в окутанной паром ловушке. Может быть, он что-нибудь поджег. Она посмотрела на вентиляционный люк и принюхалась. Но запах шел не оттуда, его источник находился где-то поблизости.
Халохот рано принялся считать цыплят. - Но кровь… - Поверхностная царапина, мадам. Мы залепили ее пластырем. Сьюзан лишилась дара речи.
В пьяной драке Хейл случайно убил сослуживца. Корейское искусство самозащиты, тхеквондо, оказалось в большей мере смертоносным, нежели оборонительным. Военной службе пришел конец.
Как ты легко можешь себе представить, я был шокирован, впервые наткнувшись на его письмо Северной Дакоте о не поддающемся взлому коде, именуемом Цифровая крепость.
