Geoscientists are using a growing number of downhole tools to examine oil and gas reservoir sedimentology. New data-analysis and visualization software, coupled with new interpretation methods, exploit the expanding capabilities of borehole-imaging technology. Unprecedented levels of detail and sophistication improve reservoir models by incorporating sedimentological models, surface and subsurface analogs, and more detailed data and analysis. This article focuses on the contribution of today's borehole imaging tools to clastic reservoir optimization.
