Magnetic susceptibility (MS) measurements of oil exploration drill cuttings from above oil reservoirs show an increase in magnetic minerals at semishallow depths worldwide.
MS intensity times the magnetic rock interval thickness, the MSRI, is shown for wells and dry holes in Alabama in this article.
After measurement through the Selma chalk, MSRI can give information on the probable success of a drilling well and, in Alabama possible production. A high-intensity MSRI zone found by the drilling well gives excellent probability that an oil/gas horizon exists below.
Drill cuttings magnetic susceptibility (MS) has been meas...
