Abstract:

In this paper, experiments are carried out under different pressures and water saturations using core samples of volcanic rocks from the Junggar Basin in China to understand how water saturation affects P- and S-wave velocities. The results show that water saturated rocks exhibit significantly higher P- and S-wave velocities than gas saturated rocks. In addition, the P- and S-wave velocity ratio declines with increasing water saturation. Furthermore, a P- and S-wave velocity ratio vs. resistivity cross plot is created to identify gas reservoirs in the volcanic rocks in the Junggar Basin.

"My experiences in publishing a paper with Bentham Open is good. I must say that the speed of publication in The Open Petroleum Engineering Journal is very fast. It takes only two month for the pioneer reviewing process. The delay was caused by me. And what’s more, the publisher’s office is quite helpful. I guess they are dealing with thousands emails every week, but they process my request in a very short period of time."
