1-D Stratigraphic Analysis

January 01, 1997


There are two goals of 1-D analysis, which are somewhat related. The first goal is to use the available wellbore data to establish an initial cycle framework. To interpret a cycle framework, lithofacies data are almost always required, and cores represent the only true source of lithofacies data. The second goal of 1-D analysis is to quantify, integrate, and analyze the available wellbore data. Wireline logs, which represent the vast majority of the 1-D data in a reservoir, must be calibrated with quantified core data before being used for 2-D stratigraphic framework interpretation and in 3-D geologic models.
