2 G ENERAL Resistivity logs are electric logs which are used to: (1) determine hydrocarbon versus water-bearing zones, (2) indicate permeable zones, and (3) determine resistivity porosity. By far the most important use of resistivity logs is the determination of hydrocarbon versus water-bearing zones. 2

3 G ENERAL (C ONT.) Because the rock’s matrix or grain are non-conductive, the ability of the rock to transmit a current (電流) is almost entirely a function of water in the pores. Hydrocarbons, like the rock’s matrix, are non-conductive; therefore, as the hydrocarbon saturation of the pores increases, the rock’s resistivity also increases. 3

4 C ALCULATE WATER SATURATION A geologist, by knowing a formation’s water resistivity (R w ), its porosity ( Φ ), and a value for the cementation exponent (m), can determine a formation’s water saturation (S w ) from the Archie equation: S w = water saturation R w = resistivity of formation water, R t = true formation resistivity as measured by a deep reading resistivity log a = tortuosity factor, m = cementation exponent, n = saturation exponent (most commonly 2.0) 4

5 T WO BASIC TYPES OF RESISTIVITY LOGS The two basic types of logs in use today which measure formation resistivity are induction (感應式) and electrode (電極式) logs. The most common type of logging device is the induction tool (Dresser Atlas, 1975) 5

7 I NDUCTION LOG An induction tool consists of one or more transmitting coils that emit a high-frequency alternating current of constant intensity. The alternating magnetic field which is created induces secondary currents in the formation. These secondary currents flow as ground loop currents perpendicular to the axis of the borehole, and create magnetic fields that induce signals to the receiver coils. The receiver signals are essentially proportional to conductivity, which is the reciprocal of resistivity (Schlumberger, 1972). conductivity = 1000/resistivity 7

8 E LECTRODE LOG A second type of resistivity measuring device is the electrode log. Electrodes in the borehole are connected to a power source (generator), and the current flows from the electrodes through the borehole fluid into the formation, and then to a remote reference electrode. Examples of electrode resistivity tools include: normal, Laterolog*, Microlog*, and spherically focused logs. 8

10 C HOOSE AN APPROPRIATE LOG SURVEY Induction logs should be used in non-salt-saturated drilling muds (i.e. R mf > 3 R w ) to obtain a more accurate value of true resistivity (R t ). Boreholes filled with salt-saturated drilling muds (R mf ≒ R w ) require electrode logs, such as the Laterolog* or Dual Laterolog* with or without a Microspherically Focused Log*, to determine accurate R t values. 10
