Introduction to Well Logs and Subsurface Maps

$83.00

by Jonathan C. Evenick, Ph.D.

Subsurface mapping is a way to visualize various geologic and hydrologic features in any dimension from a one-dimensional cross section to a 4-D production map. All subsurface map types can be useful, but the key is to know what you are investigating and what map types are most appropriate. This book introduces different types of geophysical logs and subsurface maps that can be generated from basic well data, and subsurface problems that can be solved using geophysical logs and subsurface maps."Hands-on" exercises reveal how each map type is generated and what applications they may have. Exercises at the end of each chapter introduce different types of wells and lithologies.

Contents:

  • Introduction to well logs and terminology
  • Basic well logs and log signatures
  • Introduction to subsurface maps and contouring
  • Structural and stratigraphic interpretations
  • Structure contour maps
  • Thickness maps
  • Facies maps
  • Trend surface maps
  • Trend surface residual anomaly maps
  • Hydrologic maps and injection wells
  • Formation fluid interpretation and hydrocarbon reserves
  • Mining maps
  • Cross sections
  • Appendix A: Swan Creek Term Project
  • Glossary
  • Abbreviations
  • Bibliography
