Method for Evaluating Hydrocarbon-Containing Subterranean Formations Penetrated by a Directional Well Bore.

Bill Chandler
President: Lateral Exploration Labs LLC, Graham, TX

Use this method of evaluating a hydrocarbon-containing subterranean formation to identify potentially productive zones within the formation. This method may be particularly useful for evaluating formations penetrated by a least one directionally drilled well bore. The method can include releasing, capturing, and measuring at least one property related to hydrocarbon materials entrapped in rock samples obtained from the formation, and the results of the analysis can be use to perform at least one well bore-related activity, such as drilling, geo-steering, stimulating and/or producing a new well bore.
