The book Well Logging and Geology is one in a series of three books by the authors on various aspects of well logging, with the final book to be on reservoir evaluation. The book has a very strong emphasis on geologic principles with an extensive review of the processes that influence hydrocarbon accumulations.
This book is the first in a series of three books by the authors on various aspects of well logging, with the final book to be on reservoir evaluation. The book departs from traditional log analysis books in that it has a very strong emphasis on geologic principles with an extensive review of the processes that influence hydrocarbon accumulations. The chapters are written in a stand-alone format. For example, chapter 3 on Rock Texture (39 p.) discusses clastic grain sorting, shape, packing, and orientation, as well as carbonate textures and the use of imaging tools to define some of these features in wellbores.
This book is beautifully illustrated with colored plots, charts, and block diagrams on virtually every page. Chapter 8, Well Logging and Tectonics (54 p.), provides an extensive review on fold geometries, fault classification systems, and various plotting and projection techniques based on directional logging tools used to define the structural elements within the wellbore. Chapter 11, Sequence Stratigraphy, provides an excellent summary on the developmental history of sequence stratigraphy and cites precursor terms to show their relationship to the current concepts. This chapter contains a variety of colored X-sections that show the log correlations and their relationship to the system tracts. This book contains a unique combination Index-Glossary that gives a concise definition of many of the technical terms used in this text. Because this book contains a wealth of geologic information, I believe that every exploration company should have a copy of this text in their library. (Robert F.
