Borehole Image Textural Analysis and Integrated Petrophysics – Applications in Delaware and Midland Basins

Nicholas Harvey
Harvey Rock Physics


The borehole image provides high resolution circumferential resistivity image data that can bed used to describe surface area conductivity and from that derive distributions of pore throat, permeability and porosity. This paper presents some of the approach that can be used to derive this information within the Carbonate sequence of these basins and presents a couple of examples showing how the information can help target fracture zones.
