Once you have any GeolOil license (even a trial license), you may acquire our affordable server access service to an extra data set examples of fully interpreted well logs. The server access will last until the life term of your license.
Even if you regularly use another commercial petrophysical software, it is a handson valuable tool to understand petrophysical concepts, interpretation and computation workflows. Learn how to compute porosity from different sources, matrix density, shaliness, mineral proportions solvers, scripting, and produce nice log displays. The data collection is continuously growing with key cases from naturally fractured reservoirs, clastic reservoirs, carbonate reservoirs, unconventional tight, and shale oil reservoirs.
Following down is a selection of some relevant processed log examples:
1. A clastic braided channels reservoir with a clay mineral solver.
2. A tight reservoir with a carbonate mineral solver and shale oil.
3. A carbonate and eolian reservoir with mineral solver and estimation of matrix density.
4. A clean eolian reservoir with indicator curve flags for netsand and netpay

A clastic braided channels reservoir with a clay mineral solver.
✔ GLOG File: claySolver.glog
This example shows how estimate the major different clay minerals of a clastic reservoir. The last two log tracks display the clay composition through the semiquantitative technique of XRay diffraction, and the solution found by the GeolOil clay mineral solver. Clay discrimination is always difficult. However the mineral solved estimations, show a reasonable qualitative match against the XRay diffraction reference track.
The most dominant found clay is smectite. However, around the depth MD=1820 ft., the mineral solver correctly detected the presence of the clay mineral kaolinte, which is particularly difficult to detect as its Gamma Ray response is usually low due to its low Cation Exchange Capacity. Notice on the first Lithology track, how low is the GR Gamma Ray signal compared with signal yielded by a neutron porosity minus density porosity estimator VSH. See the log plot below ↓
The functions panel workflow below shows all the functions and equations used, including the volume of shale VSH that was computed combining the contrast between neutron porosity and density porosity estimator, with a GR based Larionov VSH estimator:

A tight reservoir with a carbonate mineral solver and shale oil.
✔ GLOG File: shaleOil.glog
This example shows a typical workflow to process a tight reservoir with a mineral solver for clay and carbonate minerals. Also the deeper zone has a shale oil play for which TOC Total Organic Carbon is computed using the Schmoker equation calibrated with laboratory pyrolysis data. The track Minerals shows a reasonable agreement between mineral proportions estimated by lab XRD XRay Diffraction, and GeolOil mineral solver ↓
The sequential functions panel workflow below shows the steps that produce the interpretation.

A carbonate and eolian reservoir with mineral solver and estimation of matrix density.
✔ GLOG File: RHOM1_WebExample.glog
An accurate estimation of the matrix density RHOM ρ_{m} is a fundamental task for any petrophysicist. In complex reservoirs ρ_{m} is no longer an approximate constant value inferred from the depositional environment, but significantly varies with depth. That is ρ_{m} = ρ_{m}(depth). Once RHOM is estimated, it is used to compute porosity and water saturation —and also to estimate permeability— The brown rightmost last track "RHO matrix" on the log plot below shows how to estimate the matrix density RHOM ρ_{m} using only well log curves, without any core lab measurements available ↓

A clean eolian reservoir with indicator curve flags for netsand and netpay
✔ GLOG File: wellExampleNetPay.glog
The example below ↓ shows a log plot with indicator curve flags (GeolOil exclusive trilean logic: 1 for no, +1 for yes, 0 for inconclusive) for netsand and netpay. After computing cutoffs for porosity and water saturation —this eolian rock is very clean, so computation of Vshale cutoff is waved: GR here does not read clay, but remnants of organic bioradioactivity and signal noise—, the indicator flag curves are produced with the Filtering & Upscaling module.
The Upscalings Panel workflow below ↓ shows the steps that produce the indicator curves
