Quantitative characterization of mineralogy, lithology and physical properties from downhole measurements

Results: Quantitative mineralogy and lithology from a classical set of logs, flow properties of the formation, physical properties of rocks and minerals

Data: use of downhole measurements and sample lab measurements in an integrated scheme

Techniques (left): sound combination of multivariate statistical classifications, Bayesian inference, neural networks and inversion methods
