Based on the statistics of RILD of sharp-high, middle, and low amplitude of thick layer sand bodies from ten oil tests and production wells, the average RILD of sharp-high amplitude ranges within 7.4 [OMEGA] x m~26.4 [OMEGA] x m with maximum distributed within 9.1 [OMEGA] x m~30.3 [OMEGA] x m.
The resistivity curves of the thick layer sand bodies include three logfacies: low, middle, and sharp-high amplitude, and each of them can be merged together, which are presented as the following 4 types: sharp-high, low, sharp-high amplitude combination; middle, sharp-high combination; sharp-high, middle, low, sharp-high amplitude combination; and sharp-high, middle, low amplitude combination.
