Overview of Formation Evaluation

Introduces the scope, objectives and main methods of formation evaluation, especially LWD and wireline well logging, core acquisition and analysis, and well testing. Discusses the measurements of rock and fluid properties such as porosity, absolute and relative permeability, formation resistivity, fluid saturation, petrophysical parameters and the effects of drilling mud filtrate invasion on the formations near the wellbore. Describes the main core acquisition processes and subsequent common routine and special core analysis (SCAL) techniques. Overviews the objectives and some basic methods of well testing and analysis, and the integration of the well test analysis with other subsurface data.
