Formation porosity and water saturation play important role in evaluating potential oil reservoirs and for drafting development plans for new oil fields. This paper presents a novel method for estimating these two important parameters directly from conventional well measurements. The recently proposed Functional Networks technique is applied for rapid and accurate prediction of these parameters, using six and five basic well log measurements as data for estimating porosity and water saturation… CONTINUE READING
