The Ryder Scott petrophysics group analyzes clastic and carbonate lithologies in a wide range of depositional environments. The group performs well-log analysis and correlations and core analysis and integrates those interpretations with well-test, geophysics and geology data.

The petrophysicists build crossplots for determining lithologies, porosity and permeability distributions, water-resistivity values, water saturations and shale parameters. Ultimately, the group has developed techniques for determining fluid-transport properties and identifying potential hydrocarbons in some of the most challenging lithology and porosity systems in the world.
