PL-210 PowerLog® StatMin Training

Audience

This course is intended for experienced PowerLog users who need to delineate formation components in complex environments quickly and reliably, using statistical log analysis.

Content

StatMin is a statistical program that calculates lithology, mineralogy, and porosity. It is especially useful for modeling complex environments such as those containing sandstones of various mineralogies or carbonate environments in general. In this two-day course, the theory and principles behind StatMin are discussed first; then students set up and run StatMin jobs for two wells.

  • Mathematical foundation of statistical log analysis
  • How StatMin computes PHIE, PHIT, Vshale, Vclay, and Sw. Iteration in StatMin
  • Advantage of using linear log responses as inputs
  • Using the Compute Endpoints module to obtain linear endpoint curves from nonlinear logs
  • Defining prior, main, and alternate matrices for StatMin
  • Evaluating the model by comparing the original input curves and the reconstructed curves output by StatMin
  • Evaluating the output volume curves in PowerLog

Learning Objectives

Delineate formation components in complex environments quickly and reliably, using statistical log analysis, an iterative approach, and alternative models.
