Understanding Petrophysics1 is developed primarily to offer assistance to petroleum engineers, reservoir engineers, researchers, drilling engineers, petroleum production engineers, completion engineers, petrophysicists, petroleum geologists, students (undergraduates, postgraduates, etc.), and other oil and gas professionals interested in enriching themselves with knowledge about petrophysics (Formation evaluation).
Understanding Petrophysics1 examines the process of using borehole measurements to evaluate the characteristics of subsurface formation (rock).
Understanding Petrophysics1 provides many answers to some fundamental petrophysics questions and evaluates rock properties and their interactions with the reservoir fluids.
Understanding Petrophysics1 is a useful guide in studying petrophysical concepts and phenomena.
*MAIN OBJECTIVES OF PETRO-PHYSICS (FORMATION EVALUATION)*
-To identify hydrocarbon bearing zone
-To identify and quantify hydrocarbon in the subsurface
-To evaluate fluid as well as rock properties
-To locate reservoir fluid contacts
-To determine recoverable hydrocarbon
-To evaluate rock stresses
-To detect fractures
