This coring operations reference handbook is intended as a practical guide for the logging geologist to procedures, activities, and responsibilities required when bottomhole or sidewall coring is performed at the wellsite. Not all of the operations described are common practice in all logging units; however, familiarity with them is a necessary part of general ex ploration knowledge and professionalism. Chapter 1 discusses the concepts of porosity, permeability, and saturation, how these properties are determined in core analysis, and their significance in controlling rest:rvoir performance. Chapter 2 deals with the various techniques used in coring. Chapter 3 ex plains the routine role of the logging geologist in core retrieval, sampling, and qualitative evaluation. Chapter 4 details operating procedures for quantitative wellsite core analysis equipment. 1 INTRODUCTION 1. 1 GENERAL 1. 2 QUANTITATIVE CORE ANALYSIS The primary purpose of coring is to obtain rock samples of a sufficient size to obtain estimates of critical reservoir properties.

This book is a practical guide to downhole rock sampling and coring concepts, methods, systems, and procedures for practitioners and researchers. Its chapters are based upon years of extensive studies and research about the coring methods and via direct and continuous communication and consultation obtained from various service and operator companies such as Baker Hughes GE, NOV, OMV, and Sandvik. The contributors discuss the state-of-the-art coring methods and systems (mainly used in the petroleum industry), which include: · conventional coring; · wireline continuous coring; · invasion mitigation coring (low invasion, gel coring, sponge coring); · jam-detection, anti-jamming, full closure; · safe-coring and tripping; · oriented-coring; · pressure/in-situ coring; · logging-while-coring; · motor coring; · mini-coring; · coiled Tubing Coring; and · underbalanced coring. The contributors provide practical and applicable understanding of the procedures of these coring methods and systems, as well as the specific core barrel components, working mechanisms, and schematics of the tools and processes used. Because Coring Methods and Systems analyses and compares the core barrels used in both petroleum and mining industries, it enhances the communication and may allow knowledge transfer between the two industries. As core damage is a serious issue during coring and handling jeopardizing correct calibration of exploration data, Coring Methods and Systems has greatly focused on its identification and its mitigation. Therefore, it can be used as an ideal source for geologists, core analysts, and reservoir engineers, to ensure the retrieval of high-quality cores.
