The visual basic plotter manager: meeting the challenges of well log digital data conversion. – A.J. Ilozobhie and D. A. Obi
A geophysical well log plotter manager was developed using visual studio .net version 7.0 software in order to address the challenges faced by researchers within the academic cycle in converting digital well log data to well log curves so as to facilitate qualitative well log interpretation. The plotter was used to plot well log curves of five oil wells namely: Kinasar, Gabiu, Wadi, Masu and Krumta in the Bornu basin. The advantages of the plotter over Excel were enumerated while its limitations as compared to some standard oil company well log plotter softwares were outlined. The generated log curves were correlated with the well log curves given by the company and the result show a perfect curve match.
