Practical Interpretation of Open Hole Logs
INSTRUCTOR: Robert ‘Bob’ Barba
DISCIPLINE: Engineering, Formation Evaluation
COURSE LENGTH: 5 Days (Classroom) / 6 Half-Day Sessions (Live Online)
CEUS: 2.4 – 4.0
AVAILABILITY: Public, In-House, & Live Online
WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Reservoir engineers, petroleum engineers, production engineers, geologists, geophysicists, managers, independent operators, marketing personnel and anyone who needs a practical understanding of open hole log interpretation.
COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course requires no prior knowledge of logs or log interpretation. Attendees will learn basic interpretation techniques needed to interpret open hole well logs. Both quick-look qualitative interpretations and more rigorous quantitative interpretations are covered. The course is generic in technical scope, no specific software is used. Equations are solved by hand with a calculator. Both the theory and practice of practical, applied interpretation are covered as well as practical advice, applied exercises, discussions and the study of actual logs. The accompanying manual provides a useful reference for attendees to use after the conclusion of the course.
A LAPTOP IS REQUIRED WITH MICROSOFT EXCEL AND ADOBE INSTALLED.
