Presentation Transcript
  • Resistivity logs are electric logs which are used to:
  • (1) determine hydrocarbon versus water-bearing zones,
  • (2) indicate permeable zones, and
  • (3) determine resistivity porosity.
  • By far the most important use of resistivity logs is the determination of hydrocarbon versus water-bearing zones.

General (Cont.)
  • Because the rock’s matrix or grain are non-conductive, the ability of the rock to transmit a current (電流) is almost entirely a function of water in the pores.
  • Hydrocarbons, like the rock’s matrix, are non-conductive;
  • therefore, as the hydrocarbon saturation of the pores increases, the rock’s resistivity also increases.

Calculate water saturation
  • A geologist, by knowing a formation’s water resistivity (Rw), its porosity (Φ), and a value for the cementation exponent (m), can determine a formation’s water saturation (Sw) from the Archie equation:
  • Sw= water saturation
  • Rw= resistivity of formation water, Rt = true formation resistivity as measured by a deep reading resistivity log
  • a = tortuosity factor, m = cementation exponent, n = saturation exponent (most commonly 2.0)
two basic types of resistivity logs
Two basic types of resistivity logs
  • The two basic types of logs in use today which measure formation resistivity are induction (感應式) and electrode (電極式) logs.
  • The most common type of logging device is the induction tool (Dresser Atlas, 1975)

induction log
Induction log
  • An induction tool consists of one or more transmitting coils that emit a high-frequency alternating current of constant intensity.
  • The alternating magnetic field which is created induces secondary currents in the formation.
  • These secondary currents flow as ground loop currents perpendicular to the axis of the borehole, and create magnetic fields that induce signals to the receiver coils.
  • The receiver signals are essentially proportional to conductivity, which is the reciprocal of resistivity (Schlumberger, 1972).
    • conductivity = 1000/resistivity
electrode log
Electrode log
  • A second type of resistivity measuring device is the electrode log.
  • Electrodes in the borehole are connected to a power source (generator), and the current flows from the electrodes through the borehole fluid into the formation, and then to a remote reference electrode.
  • Examples of electrode resistivity tools include: normal, Laterolog*, Microlog*, and spherically focused logs.

  • Induction logs should be used in non-salt-saturated drilling muds (i.e. Rmf > 3 Rw) to obtain a more accurate value of true resistivity (Rt).
  • Boreholes filled with salt-saturated drilling muds(Rmf≒Rw) require electrode logs, such as the Laterolog* or Dual Laterolog* with or without a Microspherically Focused Log*, to determine accurate Rt values.

Determining when use of an induction log is preferred over an electrode log such as the Laterolog*.
