New tools and interpretation techniques provide continuous well permeability profiles without coring or extensive well testing.
These profiles obtained from wire line logs are ideally suited for reservoir description and management.
With these permeability profiles, reservoir engineers can quantify heterogeneity and tailor completions to maximize recovery rates and efficiencies.
Permeability can be obtained from acoustic data collected with a multiple array acoustilog (MAC) tool, from nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) T2 relaxation data collected with a mag...
