A formation evaluation technique is being used to evaluate the Delaware sandstones of the Permian Basin for hydrocarbons. The technique consists of crossplotting the neutron porosity and the shear wave travel time. The sandstones reservoirs that are productive will exhibit a greater shear wave travel time than would be predicted from the neutron porosity. This technique is applicable to both open and cased hole conditions.
