  • Recent advances in well logging and formation evaluation

    S. Prensky

    Recent advances in logging and formation evaluation include a new through-casing resistivity tool; HPHT tools; while-drilling directional propagation and electrode resistivity, wireline and while-drilling resistivity logging; formation testing; production logging; LWD acoustic, nuclear and seismic-while-drilling; and a portable NMR probe. A number of technical papers published on well logging and formation evaluation during the past year-as well as workshops, forums and symposiums sponsored by oilfield professional associations-provide insight into the topics of highest interest to the industry. In 2007 these included: * Directional resistivity logging tools (SEG-SPWLA workshop, September 2007) * High-angle and horizontal wells (SPWLA India Regional Conference, March 2007) * Core-log integration (SPWLA Topical Conference, May 2007) * Anisotropy and fractures (SEG, special issue of The Leading Edge, September 2007) * Carbonate reservoir characterization (SPWLA Topical Conference) * Geomechanics (SEG, special issue of The Leading Edge, May 2007) * In-well optical sensing (SPE Applied Technical Workshop; EAGE Workshop).
