7 – Quantitative Analysis Case History
What you will learn
Learn how closely your answers match ground truth, namely core porosity and permeability, and initial production rate, including:
- Understanding of the need to compare analysis results to ground truth
- Step-by-step procedures for checking your work
- Worked example for further study
This quantitative course continues coverage of basic petrophysical analysis by presenting the case history for Exercise 1, which you wrapped up in the previous Lecture. You can revise your analysis to obtain a better match by adjusting parameters or log picks, but don’t expect perfection. Two different core analyses on the same core demonstrate that lab data is not always perfect either. Treat all data as having reasonable possible error.
