The analysis of the geological and petrophysical characteristics of a subsurface reservoir is the primary purpose of most core studies. However, a thorough reservoir analysis requires the integration of core and log data, as there are often uncored intervals and uncored wells within a reservoir. This integration should begin with a key well where high quality data from both sources are available. With newly drilled wells the well-site examination of core or well cuttings can be an input to an improved interpretation of log measurements. The log study can give an insight which allows an efficient and effective study of the geological and petrophysical characteristics of a core or reservoir.

This core workshop is the product of an effort by the SEPM Carbonate Research Group to emphasize the value of careful core interpretation to hydrocarbon exploration and production programs. Initially conceived as a small conference the format was expanded in response to strong interest from the geologic community. The end result was a workshop including 14 core displays. The notes were intended as a guide but the thorough documentation of these cores will be of interest to many others.
