Petrophysicists, engineers, geologists and managers rely on paper logs and digital data to determine if there are hydrocarbons in a well. The calculations can be numerous, but ultimately a decision must be made to complete the well, abandon it, or work it over to another zone up the hole.  The data might be old and stored in boxes in a closet, or loaded on a supercomputer.  However, a basic understanding of rock and fluids underground, together with the knowledge of how several log curves "wiggle" will allow anyone to estimate where the hydrocarbons are located. 
This talk will describe the log acquisition process, basic Gulf of Mexico geology, and how to eyeball a log and find the pay.
