Abstract

The determination of the correlation between petrophysical data, and core data is essential in the determination of reservoir rock properties. The aim to design a computer algorithm, which will use the geophysical inverse theory to deduce different reservoir facies, from well log responses, by utilizing statistical relationships between the well logs and core derived lithofacies information is discussed. As such, an objective approach to analyze well log data to determine the reservoir rock properties, would speed up the interpretive process and would also enable the researcher to correlate information between wells and incorporate a-priori knowledge into their interpretation.
