Improving Accuracy with Core Data Interpretation

Core data simplifies the process of loading digitized key attributes captured from hardcopy core analysis reports, making it an essential and invaluable tool for petrophysical log interpretation and modeling. By providing accurate ground truth measurements and calibration points, our core data enhances the reliability, accuracy and efficiency of well log interpretations.

We offer direct measurements of rock properties such as permeability, porosity and lithology. These measurements are used to calibrate the petrophysical log responses and, in logging data, core analysis data can be used to assess the quality of the logging data and identify any potential issues or discrepancies.

Petrophysical Log Interpretation with Core Data

Petrophysical log interpretation is a critical process that involves analyzing data collected by downhole logging tools to determine the physical and chemical properties of subsurface rocks and fluids.  

This technique is essential for evaluating reservoir characteristics and the potential for hydrocarbon exploration and production. It relies on core data — actual rock samples from the reservoir — for ground truth measurements, which help calibrate and validate interpretations made from log data. By combining petrophysical log data with core data, experts can gain a detailed understanding of the reservoir's lithology, porosity, permeability and fluid saturations.

This comprehensive approach enhances the accuracy of reservoir models, facilitating more effective drilling and production strategies and leading to more efficient and cost-effective hydrocarbon recovery.
