Statistical Observation

The statistical techniques outlined below are very powerful analysis tools but they require a good statistical sample to be effective.  These analysis techniques are not generally attempted on data sets with less than 20 wells.

 

Contour Crossplots (click here for an example)

Pseudo-log data (click here for an example)

Acoustic - generate statistically consistent acoustic data for wells that don’t have acoustic

Density – generate pseudo-density based on the statistical data set to replace density data affected by bad or enlarged borehole or influenced by drilling mud additives like barite.

Pseudo-core data

Permeability – apparent permeability for each well based on statistical observations of the core data

Core Porosity– apparent core porosity for each well based on statistical observations of the core data

Statistical Water Saturation

Statistically based water saturations give an interpretation of the apparent fluid content of a formation independent of Rw, ‘m’ and volume of shale.  An apparent  total water saturation is derived as well as an apparent irreducible water saturation.  This is a very powerful analysis tool but requires a good statistical sample of both wet and hydrocarbon bearing intervals to be most successful.  This analysis is not generally attempted on data sets with less than 20 wells.
