Log Interpretation Case Studies

Published:
January 01, 1982

Abstract

Although all the case studies are based on actual field examples, in some studies the amount of log data analyzed would be superfluous in real-life. A pipe-setting decision doesn’t always require a full-blown log analysis. The unusual amount of detail is offered here as a learning experience. Nevertheless, careful study of a log can always yield information which will further the development of an expertise.

These case studies are offered as a progressive series of problems. In the first example the reader is asked to do very little, but in the final example the reader should be prepared to proceed most of the way alone. An effort is made to define variables and terminology appearing in the case studies, even though they may already have been defined earlier in the text.Although all the case studies are based on actual field examples, in some studies the amount of log data analyzed would be superfluous in real-life.
