A review of low-resistivity and low-resistivity-contrast pay with focus on Africa
31 January 2018 – SPWLA Saudi Arabia Chapter SAC started 2018 year with conducting a technical luncheon meeting with record of 80+ participants, Michel Claverie, Petrophysics Technical Director for Schlumberger, delivered a talk on: “A review of low-resistivity and low-resistivity-contrast pay with focus on Africa”.
Michel’s reviewed the rocks and fluids characteristics that cause hydrocarbon reservoirs to exhibit either low formation resistivity or low resistivity contrast with water-bearing zones. In his talk he discuss methods several case studies to estimate flow properties and predict produced fluids fractions with focus on Africa offshore and land reservoirs which display a wide variety of complex formation resistivity patterns from thin sand and shale laminations, porous and silty sandstones, lithic or homogeneous fresh water sands, and conductive grain-coating minerals.
