Net Pay – Applications of NMR and Dielectric Dispersion (Michel Claverie, Schlumberger )

Net Pay – Applications of NMR and Dielectric Dispersion

by Michel Claverie, Schlumberger

was presented on the 6 th of April 2016.


We will review formation evaluation methods focused on reducing the uncertainty of reservoir thickness and volumes of hydrocarbons-in-place. Two case studies will describe the applications of NMR and dielectric dispersion logs to the evaluation of a heavy-oil reservoir under steam injection offshore West Africa, and of a bioclastic carbonate reservoir from a highly deviated drain offshore UK.
