According to core data, this paper studies variation of resistivity in different pore structures and wettability conditions. The results show that with the increase of pore structure index m, the resistivity will increase significantly when the saturation is constant. Similarly, with increasing saturation index n, the resistivity will also increase even with the same saturation. With fixed m and n, the calculated formation water saturation will be very high, resulting in hydrocarbon reservoir being ignored. This variation characteristic is significant for the identification of hidden reservoir with atypical Archie formula.

"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."
