Well Section Correlation Problem Page 2 Geologists and geophysicists utilize well logs and seismic data to develop three dimensional models of subsurface petroleum reservoirs. These models are used, by drilling and production engineers, to plan development drilling and production programs. Explorationists spend a considerable portion of their time correlating subsurface formations on seismic sections and from well logs (“slipping Logs”) between near-by wells, to developing these models. The resulting correlated well log sections can be either: 1. “Hung on Structure”: i.e., the logs of all wells are shifted up or down such that the
