The Northern Adriatic basin contains a great number of developed fields at depth ranging between 1000 and 4000 meters, and a comprehensive geophysical, petrophysical and mechanical characterization of these weakly consolidated formations was carried out. For 15 wells cored in the pay zones, a systematic campaign of core measurements was undertaken and comparison between logs and cores made. Typical log programmes contained porosity, gamma ray, resistivity and sonic, including full waveforms and dipole. In the laboratory typical core measurements consisted of density, porosity, permeability, residual oil saturation, formation resistivity factor, granulometry, clay content, ultrasonic velocity measurements along with triaxial and oedometric tests. Empirical correlations and statistical analysis of this entire database at the scale of a geological unit is presented.
