This course provides an in-depth description of digital core analysis with an emphasis on fundamentals and practical applications. The course will allow reservoir engineers and petrophysicists to make the best use of the latest imaging and modelling technology. Using basic physical concepts, the course will show how to use pore-scale analysis to complement traditional measurements and to use the results intelligently to predict and interpret local displacement efficiency and field-scale recovery.
Course Level: Advanced / Specialised Instructor: Martin J. Blunt
Designed for you, if you are...
A reservoir engineer, petrophysicist or any other scientist or engineer interested in flow and transport processes in porous media
How we build your confidence
We start with scientific fundamentals and build carefully on this basic understanding to explain flow processes in porous media. A comprehensive set of discursive notes are supplemented with slides and explanations written on the board. Questions and discussion are encouraged.
