The Well Log Analyst or Petrophysicist plays many roles within the integrated technological approach to the search and exploitation of hydrocarbon resources.
What questions do some of the main disciplines ask that the well log analyst or petrphysicist will most commonly provide answers to?
Consider the Geologist.
geological tops, depostional environments, lithology
Consider the Geophysicist.
acoustic velocity contrast, synthetic seismograms, depositional environments for modeling
Consider the Reservoir Engineer.
reservoir continuity, porosity, water saturation, permeability, net pay, areal extent
Consider the Drilling Engineer.
borehole conditions, pressures, fluids expected on drill stem testing
Consider the Production Engineer.
new wells: pressures, cement bond, perforations/packers
old wells: bypassed pay, fluid contacts, poor performance
Consider the Technological Application Development Team.
how is the log data best handled and stored?, additional computer applications required based on new insights
