Lithological Characterization and Reservoir Characteristics by Computerized Tomography Assisted Micro Density log of the Rock

Nitika Garg, Harish Chandra Joshi, I.P. Pandey


Lithological Characterization of the unconsolidated rock from heavy oil field has been attempted using X-ray computerized tomography imagine techniques.  A micro density log is generated to obtain the hidden information of such variations along the depth at micro level, which normally is not available through conventional log. Useful exploratory leads have been obtained through characterization of the nature of reservoir using simple petro-physical techniques on conventional cores by defining reservoir grade, pore throat sorting and irreducible water saturation. The present study is based on the determination of mineralogical variations present within the rock.
