How To Easily Read A Well Log in 5 Minutes Using ‘Six Ko Ko Rules’

By Dosh Nazlan, Petrophysicist.

Petrophysicists look at the well log patterns, recognize the trends, and then turn those patterns into reservoir knowledge.

Well logs can tell us many stories about our reservoir. Each colorful line, each curve deflection and each curve type create the story of our reservoir.

Each reservoir story is different from one another.

But for sure, every story begins the same way. The story starts when the oil and gas, trapped inside the reservoir for million of years, get very excited to come out.

Our main task is to figure out the right story by using well logs and other lab data to make the storyline better.

When we run well logs, these hydrocarbon pools tell us everything – where they are, how they look like and how much they are, so we know how to get them.

But before we understand any story, we need to be able to read these well logs.

My first mentor, Ko Ko Kyi, first taught me how to read and interpret well logs just by looking at the well log patterns. I want to share the same tips with you today.

It’s just a common sense, step-by-step approach in interpreting any well logs. But the results are magical.This is a technique I called ‘The Ko Ko Rules’.
