Petrophysics for exploration

Often petrophysical conditioning of well data is inconsistent between wells, partial, focused on petrophysical reservoir properties or missing completely. However, rock physics and seismic inversion require conditioning of non-reservoir intervals, high consistency among wells, and extra focus on elastic and density logs.

Ikon Science generally applies a rock physics focused petrophysical analysis and conditioning to the well data to meet these specific demands. Proper conditioning can significantly improve the accuracy of all follow-up work.
