Pickett and Hingle Plots Web Site

(Determination of Archie Parameters from Porosity - Resistivity Cross Plots)

Work is partially supported by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) under Grant Number DE-FE0002056.

This web application was created to allow the user the ability to determine the Archie parameters though graphical means. The Hingle (1959) & Pickett (1973) Plots developed graphical solutions to Archie's equation, i.e., Water Saturation (Sw), Formation Water Resistivity (Rw), Archie Cementation factor (M), Archie Saturation Exponent (N) from the log data without numerical calculations.

Pickett & Hingle Plots allows the user to add Water Saturation (Sw) Lines to the plot. Pickett Plot also allows the user to include Bulk Volume Water (Bvw) and Permeability (K) Lines.
