Factor identifies hydrocarbon recoverability, type

A proposed technique determines the hydrocarbon recovery factor and mobility from resistivity logs.This technique provides the petrophysicist with the following benefits:In the early stage of a well's life, a resistivity-derived recovery factor (RF) can indicate whether further work is needed in a well, especially in the case of a water-drive reservoir.Hydrocarbon movability (HCM) is an excellent indicator for determining movable hydrocarbons before a well test.Oil mobility values are helpful in selecting perforation intervals.Field examples from the Western desert of Egypt demonstrate the application of this technique.Log calculationsEvaluators normally use resistivity logging data t...
