This interactive, applications-driven course will highlight the techniques and principles of advanced well log interpretation for oil industry professionals who deal with wireline and/or LWD logs in their job. The course will explore the tools response explained from their physical principles as well as their relationship with the rock and fluid properties; most existing open hole logging technologies will be covered explaining their main applications and limitations. Advanced interpretation methods will be discussed with numerous examples and exercises including complex lithology interpretation techniques. At the end of the course we will hold a mini-workshop on optimum logging program selection based on minimum set of logs needed for a proper evaluation, company budget and tools’ limitations.
This training course will feature:
Discussions on tools physical principles and applications
Tool limitations on different borehole environments
Tips and examples to identify and understand common logging issues
Explanation of petrophysical concepts and techniques for advanced formation evaluation
Application of interpretation methods in several examples and exercises
An engineer in the exploration and production department
A geologist, geophysicist or petrophysicist
A petroleum, reservoir or drilling engineer
In general, any oil & gas industry professional who is involved in logging data interpretation and validation
