The purpose of this book is to provide a series of techniques which will be of real practical value to petrophysicists in their day-to-day jobs. These are based on my experience from many years working in oil companies. To this end I have concentrated wherever possible on providing one recommended technique, rather than offer the reader a choice of different options.
Written by: Toby DarlingThe primary functions of a petrophysicist are to ensure that the right operational decisions are made during the course of drilling and testing a well—from data gathering, completion and testing—and thereafter to provide the necessary parameters to enable an accurate static and dynamic model of the reservoir to be constructed. Lying somewhere between Operations, Production Geology, Seismology, Production Technology and Reservoir Engineering, the petrophysicist has a key role in ensuring the success of a well, and the characterization of a reservoir.
