Description

This course represents the Complete Carbonate & Fracture Evaluation Recipe, from Quick Look Log Analysis to full Core-Log-Test integration. It presents a systematic, disciplined plan of action for the acquisition and integration of carbonate petrophysical data, highlighting problems and explaining solutions. The course provides a much needed systematic process for staff faced with the daunting prospect of managing Carbonate & Fracture, or other 'complex' reservoirs. Non-petrophysicists will learn how to quickly check geo-model input with 'Greenlists'.

Course Level: Skill
Instructor: Mark Deakin

Designed for you, if you are...

  • A petrophysicist, any geologist, operations geologist, engineer or core analyst who uses or creates petrophysical results for carbonate or 'complex' reservoirs

Basic principles are reviewed; however a year’s experience in formation evaluation is desirable.

How we build your confidence

  • All data is integrated, from drilling and LWD to well tests and the latest hi-tech logs via a recipe which provides a definitive set of results and a secure basis for decisions - a template for evaluating any complex reservoir
  • The course explains how the physical characteristics of carbonates - tight, fractured or permeable - present failure points for classical log analysis
  • How to drill, core, log, test and then integrate specifically to address these failure points is explained via a condensed learning session of interleaved theory, PetroDB-Vault IP demos, workshops and movies
  • Drilling data, core, SCAL, logs, LithoScanner, NMR, Dielectric, Sigma, Acoustic, Image-logs and MDTs are all briefly explained and fitted together to form the definitive solution for any given data set
  • 5 days of petrophysical saturation: morning recaps: Do this, don’t do that! PetroDB-Vault interactive demos; micro-practicals; movies; workshops; 25 years’ experience and debate

The benefits from attending

By the end of the course you will feel confident in your understanding of:

  • The physical differences between carbonates and clastics and their data response implications
  • Why extreme pores, vugs, fractures and oil wetness occur in carbonates and how to recognise and treat them
  • Carbonate & fracture evaluation essentials. The failure points which must be identified & healed
  • Why fracture well tests can be misleading and what critical other data you must have
  • How common errors impact results using PetroDB-Vault interactive demos
  • How to acquire and integrate key drilling, mudlog, core, special log and well test data
  • How to do quick look carbonate log analysis and integrate capillary pressures with logs in Excel or IP
  • How to do thorough, integrated and robust evaluations in any complex, conventional reservoir
  • How end-users can critically review complex petrophysical results using the author’s greenlists

Topics

  • How physical characteristics impact 1) reservoir properties 2) reservoir measurements
  • Carbonate & fracture reservoir classifications: Lucia, Nelson, Aguilera
  • Total porosity & clays vs. total porosity & pore geometry. What to do!
  • How to use data and equations intelligently. Understanding data redundancy, hierarchy and equation inversion
  • Misleading data, useful data, powerful data. Carbonate & fracture database essentials
  • Greenlists: the tests you must apply to received data sets
  • Carbonate quick look Excel template with 100+ key equations for complex reservoir evaluation
  • PetroDB, analogues, Sigma & Dielectric logs, Cap. pressure, FZI, R35, rock typing, core Sw, which Sw? NMR porosity bins, coates carbonate permeability, sonic logs, Stoneley k, stress, fracture quantification
  • The complete carbonate & fracture evaluation recipe: principles, data and A-Z information flow
  • The petrophysics to geo-model checks which really matter!
