On top of his broad openhole experience, Andy has specialized in casedhole evaluation, logging tool technology and core analysis

Andy, and his co-author Kumar Kuttan’s talk was presented at the AAPG Conference held in Melbourne in 2015 and captures some of the unique difficulties and solutions to petrophysical evaluation in the Gippsland Basin, covering a 50 year period of operations. Both openhole and casedhole examples will be presented and cover issues such as the freshwater wedge and its impact on hydrocarbon detection and saturation determination, discrimination of gas from oil in shaly sandstones, and contact movement evaluation in a low salinity basin.
