  • Publication number: 20210131951
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems and methods for performing a contamination estimation of a downhole sample comprising at least a formation fluid and a filtrate. A plurality of downhole signals are obtained from the downhole sample and one or more of the signals are conditioned. At least two of the conditioned signals or downhole signals are fused into a multivariate dataset. A principle component analysis (PCA) is performed on the fused multivariate dataset to determine optical and density properties of the formation fluid. Based on at least the PCA, optical and density properties of the filtrate are determined. From the optical and density properties of the formation fluid and of the filtrate, a multivariate calculation is performed to generate concentration profiles of the formation fluid and the filtrate.
