The recent evolution of equipment capable of measuring the relative dielectric constant of a formation has stimulated new approaches to the evaluation of water saturation. In many oil productive reservoirs, the formation water resistivities are either unknown or are very high; thus complicating conventional resistivity dependent solutions for water saturation.
