Well log petrophysical functions, equations & correlations


GeolOil is designed from scratch to handle variable matrix properties. Any "constant" parameter in any equation can be a curve in its own right. The Sequential Petrophysical Functions module has a large built-in set of 77 classic pre-defined equations and correlations for:

  1. Curve transforms (9 equations)
  2. Vshale calculations (8)
  3. Porosity (18)
  4. Permeability (7)
  5. Temperature and Resistivity (9)
  6. Water Saturation (13)
  7. Geomechanics (9)
  8. Mineral Solvers, 4 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.
