About Gus Archie
Gustave E. Archie
(1907 - 1978)
Gus Archie, a pioneer in the area of formation evaluation, developed the fundamental quantitative relationships among porosity, electrical resistivity, and hydrocarbon saturation of rocks that laid the foundation for modern log interpretation. His study, entitled "The Electrical Resistivity Log as an Aid in Determining Some Reservoir Characteristics" (Transactions of AIME, 1942), is a milestone in petroleum technology. Archie is credited with coining the term "petrophysics," and his fundamental formula is known throughout the industry as the "Archie Formula."
