This special section showcases some emerging trends and advanced techniques in formation evaluation in conventional and unconventional reservoirs using petrophysics and borehole geophysics. During the last decade, borehole geophysical measurements have experienced significant development in their acquisition and processing, especially in their interpretation in aiding the development of unconventional reservoirs. Advanced petrophysics and borehole geophysical technologies have been introduced to successfully evaluate formation properties related to the exploration and development of conventional and unconventional reservoirs.

With the development of logging-while-drilling (LWD) technology, borehole geophysical measurements are becoming more and more important in real-time geosteering and formation evaluation. Especially in unconventional...
