The fall of the Soviet Union and the subsequent opening of its borders to western oil companies have seen the search for oil turn increasingly to the 'east'. The London Petrophysical Society, chapter of the SPWLA, decided to create this formation evaluation manual specifically to help explorationists and geoscientists who have been brought up on a diet of high-quality, abundant North Sea data, to understand and interpret 'Russian-Style' logs. In addition to the Soviet Union, these logs were run in every country which was under the Soviet sphere of influence. Consolidates current western experience of gathering and analysing exploration data from the Former Soviet Union. • Provides many rules of thumb to get quickly to the, right' answer. • Overviews other related disciplines: drilling, testing, coring, regional stratigraphy, • includes Rw database. • Gives an understanding of Soviet philosophy of the oil industry and how this impacts on operating practice and data quality .• Case studies show how western ideas and technology can be married with Soviet capability to provide an enhanced result.
