Application of Activity and Wavelet Analysis on Well Logging Sedimentary Cycle Division


The method of sedimentary cycle division is studied based on comprehensive research and activity analysis of well logging, combined with wavelet analysis and characteristics of stratigraphic cycle. Based on the method above, this paper divided stratigraphic cycles and finely classified the tratifigraphic by taking H1518 in HSS oilfield as an example. The result shows that sedimentary cycle can be divided effectively based on key stratum study, activity and wavelet analysis of well log, and the research of sedimentary cycle characteristics. H1 formation can be divided into 1 sand group, 3 sand layers and 7 single layers.
