High-resolution LWD imaging provides fresh insights into offshore Angola’s Pinda reservoir ///

The Pinda was the first producing reservoir in the N’Sano field of the Lower Congo basin offshore Angola. The reservoir’s mixed clastic and carbonate lithologies have been extensively characterized during the previous two decades. Nevertheless, understanding the reservoir has been challenging due to complex lithologies and the relationships of secondary porosity to permeability. Baker Hughes recently deployed logging-while-drilling (LWD) imaging technologies, in combination with real-time and post-processing methods, to deliver new insights into previously established interpretations of the reservoir.
