As a borehole image log interpreter, I work by continuously looking back into the abyss of geologic time. I look at pictures of the geologic past and attempt to reassemble the processes that led to catagenic fracture generation, bedding-parallel compressional faulting or pulsed debris-flow destruction of quiet epicontinental sea-floor muds. I apply expertise in sedimentology, mineralogy, geochemistry, hydrogeology, tectonics and basin evolution to understand the subsurface. I love that I am challenged by the (often inscrutable) complexities of many basins. I have direct experience with the Piceance Creek, Green River, Uinta, Paradox, Powder River, Denver-Julesberg, Raton, San Juan, Midland, Delaware, Appalachian and Michigan Basins.
I have analyzed 100s of miles of resistivity and acoustic borehole image logs comprised of data from the 4 major service providers (Schlumberger, Halliburton, Weatherford, and Baker-Hughes). These include data from FMS, FMI, FMI-HD, NGI (Quanta-Geo), OBMI, Dual-OBMI, HMI, CMI, XRMI, UBI, GeoXplorer, Earth Imager, OMRI, STAR, STAR TRAK and CBIL acquisition tools. New work is being done with emerging technologies, including PetroMar’s new FracView Logging While Drilling (LDW) image too and CMI. Data processing is accomplished using Terrasciences TerraStation II software.
