THE PETROPHYSICIST'S LIBRARY
During the course of a petrophysicist's career, it is tempting to acquire all the reference material you can lay your hands on. This is a pretty good plan, but for newcomers to our industry, this can be both expensive and difficult. Some texts cost more than $400; others are dated, narrow, shallow, or one-sided.

To assist you in creating a worthwhile library, I have prepared a list which includes most textbooks and service company manuals of interest to log analysts. The list includes full title, first author, publisher, date, approximate cost, ISBN number, page count, and a very brief (and very personal) comment. From this, you should be able to high-grade your library acquisitions.

Most of the hardcover textbooks and service company material listed here are still available, some in updated editions with different ISBN numbers. Check with your local technical book store, online source, or service company representative. If these sources fail, try www.amazon.com or www.ebay.com .

There are, of course, many other sources of log analysis knowledge. These include service company brochures on specific tools and software products. Sometimes older versions are very useful while analyzing older logs. Journals and transactions of technical societies, such as CWLS, CSPG, CSEG, CIM, SPWLA, AAPG, SEG, SPE and others, contain thousands of technical papers related to our industry. Electronic copues are often available fro the various Societies or from www.onepetro.org.

The lowest cost textbook quality reference manuals are available in PDF format from this website. These are listed below - use the menu on the left to order. Following that list are Hardcover Textbooks that I have used, followed by a short list of the most useful Service Company manuals. Some of this type of material is also available on the Service Company websites, but older material may not be present.
