This paper presents a technique for relating wireline log data to production in the Morgan Lloydminster A Pool. It will be shown that information derived from this study of log data can be used to determine a particular heavy oil well’s producing potential. Should the well not be producing to this estimated potential, the technique derived will indicate if a stimulation is necessary or warranted.
