... and if mud salinity is different from formation water salinity, dipole layers form along borehole wall, layer boundaries and invasion zone boundaries. The dipole layers produce Spontaneous Potential (SP) in the borehole. So, for long time, well logging analysts have used the SP curve to determine permeable...

... Abstract Spontaneous Potential (SP) and Gamma Ray (GR) logs are often the only measurements available in many old hydrocarbon fields. Reliable coupled petrophysical interpretation of GR and SP logs requires previous accurate quantitative calibration for the effects of shale laminations, water...

..., the Spontaneous Potential (SP) Log. As implied by Gillingham, zonal differences between SP logs run in wells while they are shut in and during injection are related to flow rate. This technique has the sensitivity to profile most open-hole or fiber-glass-lined fresh water injection wells, but lacks...

... ABSTRACT Formation water resistivity (Rw) is one of the most important parameters in log interpretation. Spontaneous potential or SP logs have been used in Rw calculation, which is especially effective in clean sand. However, when the sand contains clay, the clay interferes with the ion...

... Conventional Spontaneous Potential (SP) measurements are usually affected by many factors such as formation thickness, formation resistivity, mud resistivity, and borehole diameter. Because of these factors, the measured SP values could be much less than the Static SP (SSP) values and thus...

... are not considered. Taking the spontaneous potential (SP) log as an example, we see that it measures correct values only in thick beds, and far enough from bed boun- daries. Calculations based on Esp close to bed boun- daries will be incorrect. If the bed is thin enough, we may not be getting correct calculations...

The saltwater mud used in wells attenuates the spontaneous potential (SP), and thin beds, clay, low permeability. and variable-invasion profiles distort the SP curve, therefore, the SP is not available for water-resistivity determination. The apparent water-resistivity methods and apparent formation-resistivity...
