Lithology & Facies Classification

geophysical-services-banner.jpg

Classifying lithologies and facies is important to distinctly define rocks of interest and to build a better understanding of the depositional environments encountered in the wellbore. Lithologies and facies can be classified simply through defining cutoffs in wireline logs or more robustly through petrophysical property cutoffs (e.g. volume clay, porosity, permeability, water saturation). The resulting classifications can then be used to construct a geostatistical model to optimize the placement of wells.

Facies Track Facies Track 01

Well log showing facies, displayed in "Facies" track, which were defined from petrophysical properties shown in the "Interp" track.

Facies Track 02

Facies defined from petrophysical properties where used to create a geostatistical model driven by seismic data to interpolated facies between wells.
