The GeolOil 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"

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:
- Curve transforms (11 equations)
- Vshale calculations (12)
- Porosity & ρmatrix (27)
- Permeability (17)
- Temperature and Resistivity (12)
- Water Saturation (21)
- TOC Total Organic Carbon (5)
- Geomechanics (11)
- 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.
