In many older fields, you only have resistivity logs to work with. What if you need a sonic log to generate seismic seismogram?
A quick solution is to generate your own pseudo sonic log.

In 1951, Faust came up with a transform to estimate compressional...
Do you know that you can visually estimate porosity just by looking at your density and neutron logs?
The trick is very simple, but not a lot of people know about it.
It’s particularly useful in a relatively clean carbonate or sandstone and liquid (oil or gas) bearing zone.
So, here is the...
Petrophysicists like patterns and trends. It’s a sure and a quick way to evaluate a reservoir.
They make it easier for us to establish, correlate and predict the outcomes.
Like in a quick log analysis, if we know that the density-neutron are overlaying, it means that we are in an oil or water...
Is wireline depth always deeper than the LWD depth?
In most cases, the wireline depth is deeper than the LWD Depth.
The cable stretches more than the pipe stretch of LWD string.
But the good thing is, the cable stretch can be corrected, while the LWD stretch cannot be corrected.
There are three things you need to be good at log interpretation: Identify, Interpret and Integrate.
Have an interest in what, why and how of the things you do. For instance, if you want to interpret a log, you need to know why you spend money to get the logs, how to tell good...
Diagenesis makes complex carbonate complex.
Classifying the rock types in any complex carbonate reservoirs is very hard.
Rock typing is a clustering of rocks that have the similar geological and petrophysical properties at core and log scale.
It's like trying to group your rock favorite rock...
When you evaluate a shale gas reservoir, you need to think about four things:
Kerogen is one the key properties in shale gas evaluation. Kerogen relates to TOC, absorbed gas, porosity and gas saturation.
Most unconventional reservoirs like shale oil and shale gas contains...
When kerogen and shales are present, you must apply a shale and kerogen correction to get effective porosity.
While we can correct for shale effect in resistivity, do we need to worry about making kerogen correction for resistivity and water saturation? Is there a kerogen correction we must...
