New Mexico Play Fairway Analysis: Gamma Ray Logs and Heat Generation Calculations for SW New Mexico 3000320001_PietownFederal_gamma.xls

For the New Mexico Play fairway Analysis project, gamma ray geophysical well logs from oil wells penetrating the Proterozoic basement in southwestern New Mexico were digitized. Only the portion of the log in the basement was digitized. The gamma ray logs are converted to heat production using the equation (Bucker and Rybach, 1996) : A[microW/m3] = 0.0158 (Gamma Ray [API] - 0.8). Gamma ray measurements in Proterozoic basement for Pietown Federal Well 1 (API 3000320001, Operated by Tenneco Oil Company)
