Rigless Mineralogy Logging for Improved Geological Modeling and Reservoir Understanding
27 Feb 2019 – SPWLA Saudi Arabia Chapter conducted the first technical luncheon event in 2019 by Marie Van Steene, Principal Petrophysicist with Schlumberger Wireline in Saudi Arabia, presented a new technology for Rigless Mineralogy Logging for Improved Geological Modeling and Reservoir Understanding. In this technical presentation Marie showed several examples of the use of the new PNL tool to get mineralogy, both in open hole and in cased hole. Also, she compared the output with other spectroscopy tools out with good agreement. Marie also discussed the limitations of the technique and how to plan acquisition to maximize data quality, After the talk and Q&A a token of appreciation was delivered to Marie by SPWLA Saudi Arabia executive committee, this event was well attended with more than 70 attendees.
