R t R o R w R e s i t v y Cube of water having resistivity, R w Non-shaly rock, 100% saturated with water having resistivity, R w Rock containing pores saturated with water and hydrocarbons φ = 100% S w = 100% φ = 20% S w = 100% φ = 20% S w = 20% Formation Factor Equation Saturation Equation
• The formation factor (F) depends on – Porosity of the formation, – Pore geometry - tortuosity – Lithology of the formation – Degree of cementation, and – Type and amount of clay in the rock Formation Factor From J. Jensen, PETE 321 Lecture Notes
