Scanning Electron Microscope Application to Formation Evaluation (1)

E. M. Kieke (2), D. J. Hartmann (3)


The scanning electron microscope (SEM) can be utilized to relate rock type to pore geometry, to log response, and to fluid distribution in reservoir rocks. Several examples illustrate how the SEM photos aided in properly evaluating other engineering and geologic data to establish production which might normally be overlooked. The alteration of sands by cementation can be documented, and original environments of deposition can be reconstructed by using the scanning electron microscope.
