Two Approaches Provide Quality Control for NMR Measurement of Unconventional Rock
The authors introduce and compare two quality-control approaches based on two different signal-processing practices.
Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) measurements are extremely valuable in the assessment of fluid-flow properties of rocks. However, inverted transverse-relaxation time (T2) distributions are often biased. The authors of the complete paper introduce and compare two quality-control approaches based on two different signal-processing practices: the semilogarithmic derivative and the Hilbert transform. This work provides the basis of effective quality-control methods for NMR measurements for the petrophysical interpretation of rocks with complex pore-size distributions.
