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…

AFES Meeting – Generate value from ditched materials: QEMSCAN analysis of cuttings

Ditch cuttings represent a hugely underutilized resource that QEMSCAN analysis can transform into value generating data. Traditional challenges to working with cuttings are overcome using FEI’s iDiscover software.  Formation properties are isolated from drilling mud contaminants by ‘digital washing’ of the images and data.  Whole rock formation porosity, mineralogy and other properties can be estimated…

AFES Meeting – Alternative Nuclear-based Technologies to Mitigate Risks of Well Logging Sources – 9th September 2015

Nuclear logging tools using radioisotopes, Am-241 and Cs-137, are critical for reservoir characterization and related completion and production decisions. Being small, mobile and often used in politically unstable regions, these sources can pose radiological dispersal device (RDD) or so-called ‘dirty bomb’ risks.  This concern has been exacerbated by recent stolen/missing source incidents, existence of a…
