Resistivity Free Saturation

LPS One-Day Seminar

Resistivity Free Saturation

Call for Abstracts until the 31st October 2018

On Thursday 13th December 2018 the London Petrophysical Society will be holding a one-day seminar entitled Resistivity Free Saturation at the Geological Society, Burlington House, London

The day will consist of a series of themed talks, on deriving water saturations without the use of resistivity logs, each lasting around 30 minutes with five minutes for questions.

We are looking for talks on quantitative determination of water saturation without resistivity, for example:

– Using NMR or dielectric logs to derive Sw

– Determining Sw from core data

– Case studies where resistivity data may be unreliable (i.e. thin beds, low contrast pay)

– Use of saturation height functions

– Determining Sw from cased hole logs (e.g. pulsed nuclear)

– Any other method of determining Sw without using resistivity logs

This is a Call for Abstracts for presentations from Oil & Gas Companies, Service Companies, Independent Consultants, Academia and other interested parties, on topics related to water saturation without resistivity.
