Conceived and written by a geologist for geologists, Fundamentals of Well-Log Interpretation is a considerably revised and updated translation of the French edition. Part 1 dealt with the acquisition of logging data and when it appeared, one reviewer wrote: ``Serra has written a major reference work which is unusually well-organized, well-illustrated, and information-rich ... If volume 2 is as thorough and exacting in detail as volume 1, it will do much toward furthering geologists' knowledge of well logging.'' (AAPG Bulletin). The fundamental objective of this second volume is to show that wireline log data constitute a remarkable source of geological information of the utmost importance for geologists, but also for reservoir engineers, geophysicists and petrophysicists. Too often, by nature of their training, geologists do not realize that wireline log data, which are physical data, hold in fact a tremendous variety of geological information covering practically all branches of geology. They are reluctant to use these data because often they are not familiar with them and do not know how to interpret wireline logs. Other log users generally do not realize the importance of geological knowledge to better interpret logs. This book aims to fill the gap by showing how wireline log data are dependent on geological parameters and how to extract the latter from the former. Methods of extracting the desired information from the wireline log data are explained and illustrated. In summary, the book explains how to make good geological studies from wireline logs. It is an invaluable acquisition for geologists, petrophysicists, reservoir engineers and geophysicists who wish to make better use of wireline log data.This book aims to fill the gap by showing how wireline log data are dependent on geological parameters and how to extract the latter from the former.
