StatMin makes it easy to work with data that includes complex and varied minerals. It uses a probabilistic model to calculate lithology, mineralogy, and/or porosity and can easily adapt to the needs of the analyst. While PowerLog handles typical curves, StatMin handles any well log or computed curve that responds to lithology/mineralogy.
Determine fluids and mineral volumes using StatMin for stochastic analysis. StatMin uses statistical methods to analyze difficult formations for petrophysical parameters including porosity, water saturation and quartz content.
StatMin is based on a technique first presented at the 1988 Society of Professional Well Log Analysts Symposium and later reprinted in the June 1991 edition of World Oil in an article entitled "A Practical Approach to Statistical Log Analysis" by William K. Mitchell and Richard J. Nelson. Mr. Mitchell was instrumental in StatMin's development and continues to assist us with support.
StatMin solves balanced, over-determined, and under-determined models:
StatMin uses linear response equations, which compute much faster than non-linear models. Non-linear solutions can be achieved through the use of computed curve inputs. For example, you can input SPHI (Hunt-Raymer) rather than DT. In addition to the computation of porosity and mineralogy, StatMin will output the reconstructed versions of all the input curves.
The benchmark for petrophysics, rock physics, facies analysis and statistical mineralogy. Collaborative multi-well log analysis made easy for better drilling decisions.
