Assessment of the facial affiliation of local oil and gas objects based on geophysical data


In the established practice of geological exploration for oil and gas conclusions about the facies belonging of the rocks of oil and gas basins and individual exploration areas were made mainly on the basis of the study of core material. Recently for this purpose the results of seismic exploration and well logging have been used. Geophysical methods despite their obvious progress are indirect and intermittent core sampling and incomplete coring make facies analysis difficult. Тhe study of cuttings during the well logging process makes it possible to fill this gap through direct continuous observations along the well section. The use of the whole complex of geophysical methods allows one to mutually compensate for the limitations and disadvantages of each of them and more fully and reliably assess the genetic characteristics and reservoir potential of productive deposits. Sequential accumulation, comparison and analysis of heterogeneous geophysical data make it possible to continuously refine apriori facies models and forecast oil and gas content which ultimately allows to optimize the directions and volumes of drilling.
