Workflow of petrophysical functions, equations & correlations


"It is a great tool for doing petrophysical analysis with the ability to do several complex work-flows in a sequential format"

Brian Black. Owner and Geologist. Black Petroleum Resources, LLC. Utah, USA.∎


"I do enjoy the detailed workflow for determining various attributes"

Jason Currie. PG., MS. CEO and President of Point Bar Energy LLC, Oklahoma City, OK. USA.∎



GeolOil was designed from the beginning to handle variable matrix properties. Any "constant" parameter in any equation can be a curve in its own right. The Sequential Petrophysical Functions Workflow module has a large built-in set of 123+ classic pre-defined equations and correlations for:

  1. Curve transforms (11 equations)
  2. Vshale calculations (12)
  3. Porosity & ρmatrix (27)
  4. Permeability (17)
  5. Temperature and Resistivity (12)
  6. Water Saturation (21)
  7. TOC Total Organic Carbon (5)
  8. Geomechanics (11)
  9. Mineral Solvers, 7 models. (Other software usually add Mineral Solvers as a separate module for purchase)

As an example consider a case of a clastic reservoir where the interpreter decides to change the reference GR value for clean sandstones (or use a variable curve instead of a constant). Then the sequence to update the water saturation curve with a single click must follow four calculations in the chained sequence:

  • Update the linear Gamma Ray index curve (IGR) to account for the updated clean sandstone GR value or variable curve.
  • Update a possible non linear Vshale model like Larionov, which depends on the updated curve of IGR.
  • Update the effective porosity for its change in VSH.
  • Update the effective shale corrected water saturation model SW like Simandoux, which depends upon VSH and PHIE.
