1. “Well Logging for Earth Scientists” by Darwin V Ellis and Julian M Singer

“Well Logging for Earth Scientists” Book Review: This book reveals the process of well log analysis for students, researchers and practitioners. It can help geophysicists, geologists, or petroleum engineers. It reviews logging measurement technology developed in the last twenty years. It also expands the petrophysical applications of the measurements. It exposes the physical basis of borehole geophysical measurements. An introduction to practical petrophysics has also been given.

2. “Mathematical Model of Spontaneous Potential Well-Logging and Its Numerical Solutions (SpringerBriefs in Mathematics)” by Tatsien Li and Yongji Tan

“Mathematical Model of Spontaneous Potential Well-Logging and Its Numerical Solutions (SpringerBriefs in Mathematics)” Book Review: This book serves as a mathematical model of spontaneous potential well-logging and its numerical solutions. It demonstrates the necessity of introducing Sobolev spaces with fractional power. Here, in the axisymmetric situation the well-posedness of the corresponding mathematical model is proved. Three efficient schemes of numerical solution have also been suggested for this model. These have been backed by several numerical examples to meet practical computation needs. The table of contents include five chapters, namely Modeling, Properties of Solutions, Limiting Behaviour, Techniques of Solution, and Numerical Simulation.

3. “Well Logging and Formation Evaluation (Gulf Drilling Guides)” by Toby Darling

“Well Logging and Formation Evaluation (Gulf Drilling Guides)” Book Review: This book is a concise guide to both well logging as well as other important topics in evaluating formations. It can help petrophysicists and engineers in their day-to-day jobs. It supplies the right operational decisions that should be made during the course of drilling and testing a well, from data gathering to completion and testing. It also states necessary parameters to enable an accurate static and dynamic model of the reservoir to be constructed. It covers all the latest technologies and practices, including troubleshooting for stuck pipe, operational decisions, and logging contracts. Money-saving and time saving strategies have been proposed effectively.

4. “Electromagnetic Seabed Logging: A new tool for geoscientists” by Stéphane Sainson

“Electromagnetic Seabed Logging: A new tool for geoscientists” Book Review: This book is intended for geophysicists, petroleum geologists, earth scientists, reservoir engineers and log analysts. The book describes marine electromagnetic methods and their application. It also presents the methods’ principles, advantages, limitations, instruments and modeling. It covers Seabed logging (SBL) methods of marine subsoil exploration and exploration of oil and gas at sea. Electromagnetic SBL method coupled with seismic reflection survey for direct detection of hydrocarbons has also been discussed. It sets the theoretical and practical limits of these investigations for future developments.

5. “Geophysical Logging of Water Wells in Northeastern Illinois (Classic Reprint)” by Carl a Bays
6. “The Distillation of Stumpwood and Logging Waste of Western Yellow Pine (Classic Reprint)” by M G Donk
7. “Geological and Mud Logging in Drilling Control: Catalogue of Typical Cases” by Ecole Nationale Supérieure du Pétrole et des Moteurs

“Geological and Mud Logging in Drilling Control: Catalogue of Typical Cases” Book Review: This book is based on examples supplied by the Compagnie Française des Pétroles (TOTAL-CFP) and Société Nationale Elf Aquitaine-Production (SNEA-P). It combines studies and issued recommendations that have led to standardized practices in the various fields of the petroleum industry: exploration, development, environment, safety, documentation, etc. The results of the Engineers committee have been presented in the form of manuals, articles in professional magazines and textbooks published in the ENSPM collection. A total of 14 chapters in the form of cases has been covered. Some examples include Using Calcimeters; Circulating out a gas kick; Water Flowing Well; Drilling through an evaporitic series; and many more.
