PorMax = 0.35

PorMin = 0.02

CPS PorMax = 75
CPS_PorMax

CPS_PorMin = 600

## B = log(PorMax/PorMin) / (CPS_PorMax - CPS_PorMin)

A = PorMax / 10 ^ (B*CPS_PorMax)

PHIGRN = A * 10 ^ (B * CPS)

Cmp = 1.0

PHIS = ((1/Cmp)

## SoPhiH = (1-SwA) * PHIA

WATER RESISTIVITY

Archie Ro

Ro = a * Rw / (PHIA^m)

## Apparent Water Resistivity

Rwa = RT * PHIA^m

Conductivity

COND = 1000/RT

## RoDW = (1 / (PHIA^m)) * (Rw * RwBnd / (Rw * Vshl + RwBnd * (1 Vshl)))

Modified Simandoux Ro

K = -71

RmfRwRatio = 10 ^ (SP / K)

## Vshl = min(1, max(0, (RHOB - RhoM + PHIN * (RhoM - RhoF)) /

(RhoShl - RhoM +HIshl * (RhoM - RhoF)) ))

SHALE VOLUME
