    The reservoir rock in Saudi Arabia is chiefly of the Arab zone (Upper Jurassic), consisting of several limestone and dolomite formations, each 20– feet thick, separated by anhydrite layers. 43 The chief producing limestone formation of Iran is the Asmari limestone (Oligocene and Miocene), –1, feet thick, which underlies a large.   The ravel zone is characterized by increased porosity and reduced per- centage of fines. Depending on depth to the local ground- water table, the ravel zone can either be a high-resistivity anomaly (if dry) or a low-resistivity anomaly (if saturated).

    Abstract. The understanding of reservoir rock properties such as porosity, permeability, water saturation, and resistivity assists engineers to improve the characterization of the reservoir, and the cementation exponent m is an intrinsic property of the rock related to the geometry of the electrically-conductive water network imposed by the pore walls or surfaces of solid insulating Author: HM Sbiga, Gamal Alusta. Calculating S w from Resistivity Well Logs by Applying a Model Relating S w to Porosity, Connate-Water Resistivity, and Various Rock Electrical Properties. The most common technique for calculating S w is the use of resistivity logs with a model (empirical or theoretical) that relates S w to R t, R w, and porosity.

    Abstract [1] Multichannel electrical resistivity (ER) measurements were conducted at two contrasting coastal sites in Hawaii to obtain new information on the spatial scales and dynamics of the fresh water–seawater interface and rates of coastal groundwater exchange. At Kiholo Bay (located on the dry, Kona side of the Big Island) and at a site in Maunalua Bay (Oahu), there is . The electrical resistivity method is the most widely used and it has proved particularly effective in groundwater exploration because many geological formation properties such as porosity and permeability that are critical to hydrogeology can be correlated with electrical conductivity signatures (Eke and Igboekwe, ).

ErchulThe use of electrical resistivity to determine porosity Cited by: Electrical resistivity has been used as a proxy for porosity in numerous small scale studies of near surface sediments recovered in coring operations (e.g., Andrews and Bennett, ;Wheatcroft et. measured resistivity profiles to more physically-relevant properties such as bulk density or porosity.

The porosity (φ) characterizes the relative amount of pore space within a sample volume. It is defined by the ratio V V total sample volume volume of pore space f φ= = () Equation describes the File Size: 4MB. For calculating bulk sediments diffusion coefficients from free solution diffusion coefficients, Formation factor, F, can be estimated from Phi, porosity of sediments.

To determine formation factor, resistivity of pore water and sandy sediments with different diameter, originated from Qingdao's seashore, were measured by using a modified Miller.

dissertation]: University Microfilms, International, Publication no. p. Therefore, in the alteration zone of the surveyed terrain, blocks with moderate to higher electrical resistivity were interpreted as fractured rocks forming local aquifers, while low resistivity blocks indicated highly weathered rocks of generally low permeability (despite their higher total porosity, i.e., water content).

Porosity, another key item in sediment consolidation and an interesting parameter in marine geoscience and engineering, can be determined from electrical resistivity using Archie's Law (Arichie, ), which requires assumptions about the geometry of the fluid by: 9.

They are formed at the foot of mountains, as a river emerges from the mountain range and flows into a large valley, water body, or an area where the river slope decreases [1,2,3,4].The genesis of alluvial fans creates deposits with different permeability and porosity due to ancient streams Cited by: [1] Multichannel electrical resistivity (ER) measurements were conducted at two contrasting coastal sites in Hawaii to obtain new information on the spatial scales and dynamics of the fresh water–seawater interface and rates of coastal groundwater exchange.
