Nickzom Calculator Solves Formation Factor of Well Logging in Petroleum Engineering

According to Schlumberger OilField Glossary,

The ratio of the resistivity of a rock filled with water (Ro) to the resistivity of that water (Rw).

On selecting Petroleum, a bunch of links to major topics in Petroleum Engineering is displayed. Scroll down to Well Logging and click on it.

According to Wikipedia,

Well logging, also known as borehole logging is the practice of making a detailed record (a well log) of the geologic formations penetrated by a borehole. The log may be based either on visual inspection of samples brought to the surface (geological logs) or on physical measurements made by instruments lowered into the hole(geophysical logs).

On clicking on Well Logging

For the purpose of this purpose, click on Formation Factor. Nickzom Calculator requires 2 parameters to solve the formation factor of a given data. These 2 parameters are:

  • Resistivity of the Formation
  • Resistivity of the Saturating Water

Now, enter the values of the parameters appropriately and accordingly.

Lastly, click on Calculate

The result is displayed for you to use.
