Key Digital Rock Physics applications for shales as well as carbonates, tight gas sands and complex clastics are •Transform special core analysis (SCAL) as practiced today – speed, accuracy, many samples from many facies and rock types •From core repositories create large rock property data bases of relative perm, cap pressure, mechanical properties etc – all on the same sample •Populate mega size Reservoir simulators •From cuttings obtain permeability, elasticity, and fractability logs at the wellhead in quasi real time •Enable much more rigorous links between rock properties and logs •Link log and rock properties and seismic to look away from the borehole (“drill virtual wells from seismic”) •Significantly enhance the interpretations of time-lapse geophysics/monitoring
