Abstract

In the paper a combined inversion algorithm solving the nonlinear geophysical well-logging inverse problem is presented. We apply a successive combination of a float-encoded Genetic Algorithm as a global optimization method and the well-known linearized Marquardt algorithm forming a fast inversion procedure. The technique is able to decrease the CPU run time at least one order of magnitude compared to the Genetic Algorithm and gives the parameter estimation errors having a few linearized optimization steps at the end of the iteration process. We use depth-dependent tool response equations to invert all the data of a greater depth-interval jointly in order to determine petrophysical parameters of homogeneous or inhomogeneous layers in one inversion procedure. The so-called interval inversion method gives more accurate and reliable estimation for the petrophysical model parameters than the conventional point by point inversion methods. It also enables us to determine the layer-thicknesses that can not be extracted from the data set by means of conventional inversion techniques. We test the combined interval inversion method on synthetic data, and employ it to the interpretation of well logs measured in a Hungarian hydrocarbon exploratory borehole.
