Conventional pore pressure prediction analysis relies on a predictive relationship between porosity and effective stress. The porosity of a shale is captured by various wireline log data such as compressional sonic velocity, resistivity, and density.

However, there are several factors that affect the magnitude of log responses, for example: cementation, different fractions of non-clay material, clay content, and the presence of kerogen/organic matter (Green and Vernik, 2021).

This study focuses on building corrections for the TOC-effect on log response. TOC decreases formation bulk density and velocity and therefore mimics the effect of overpressure potentially leading to a false impression of overpressure magnitudes.

In this talk we demonstrate two methods to remove the effect of TOC on the VP log response and we compare pore pressure predictions from measured and corrected log data in a well from the Midland Basin, US.
