A Neural Network approach to The Computation of Permeability from Well Logs


Liu Rui-Lin, Zhou Deng-Dang, Jianghan Petroleum Institute


The relationship between permeability and well log data is complex. Multivariate Analysis is usually used to solve for the relations between them,which uses a single formula to express such complexity.Obviously,this approach works in the formations where lithology is monotonous. However,for the formations with complex lithologies,the permeability derived from this approach would have poor accuracy.
