AFES Meeting – Joint interpretation of magnetic resonance fluid volumes and resistivity-based water saturation – a missed opportunity?

Speaker: Geoffrey Page, Baker Hughes

Abstract: The accurate quantification of fluid volumes is one of the most important tasks for determining the economic value of hydrocarbon reservoirs. Resistivity-based fluid saturation calculations have been established for many decades with known benefits and challenges. More recently, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) technology has developed as an alternative, robust method for direct fluid volume estimation. We present a systematic compilation and discussion of main properties affecting resistivity and NMR fluid volume estimations such as Archie exponents and T2 cutoffs. This includes various reservoir types with various fluid types and measurement conditions. Guidelines will be provided on how to combine resistivity-based fluid volumetrics and NMR-based volumetrics most effective.

Biography: Geoffrey Page studied physics at the Royal College of Science in London. He began his oilfield career as a Dresser Atlas field engineer 36 years ago, moved into Petrophysics in Aberdeen 28 years ago, and is now Region Petrophysical Advisor for Baker Hughes based in Aberdeen. He is a former President of the Aberdeen chapter of the SPWLA (AFES) and was honoured with a “life membership.” He has written and presented many papers over the years and in his spare time, Geoff teaches the Petrophysics course of Aberdeen University’s “Integrated Petroleum Geoscience” MSc programme.
