How to Use Paradigm Geolog 7 2011.1 for Formation Evaluation: A Step-by-Step Guide


Paradigm Geolog 7 2011.1: A Powerful Formation Evaluation Suite




Formation evaluation is a crucial process in the exploration and development of hydrocarbon reservoirs. It involves the analysis of well data, such as logs, cores, tests, and images, to determine the properties and characteristics of the subsurface formations, such as porosity, permeability, saturation, pressure, temperature, stress, fracture, etc. These parameters are essential for estimating the volume and quality of the hydrocarbon resources, as well as for designing optimal drilling and production strategies.

However, formation evaluation is not an easy task. It requires a lot of data management, quality control, interpretation, integration, modeling, visualization, and reporting. Moreover, it involves a lot of uncertainty and variability due to the complexity and heterogeneity of the geological formations, as well as the limitations and errors of the measurement tools. Therefore, geoscientists need a powerful software package that can handle all these challenges and provide reliable and accurate results.
