Effective Electromagnetic Log Data Interpretation in Realistic Reservoir Models


This paper analyzes some specific features of the numerical interpretation of high-frequency electromagnetic logging data in vertical, deviated and horizontal boreholes entering oil- and water-saturated formations. The interpretation is based on numerical modeling for signals.
