Principles of Dielectric Logging covers the theory of dielectric logging - from first principles to development of new tools - for those involved in the design, development, and interpretation of dielectric logging. Dielectric logging has recently experienced a revival in the oil and gas industry and is now considered a preferred method for estimating the saturation of reservoirs. Topics covered include use of dielectric tools in different types of fields, interpretation methods, the Maxwell phenomena, as well as how to develop new dielectric tools for future use. Principles of Dielectric Logging includes enough detail that newcomers in the field as well as seasoned professionals and researchers will find it useful.

Key Features

  • Covers both the theory and applications of dielectric logging
