P. curve (Fig. 6). Calibration may then be made since the sand line will correspond to the coarsest sand samples seen in the well samples. P. log as a grain-size profile is a well-established technique it has several limitations naturally. The relationship between the permeability and grain size is valid only for sediments with primary intergranular porosity. P. log may not reflect grain size in cemented sandstones or in carbonates with complex diagenetic histories. P. curve only shows good amplitude when there is a substantial difference between the salinity of the drilling mud and that of the formation waters.
