ATTEND AN UPCOMING EVENT: 

 

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 acquire understanding and 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.

LEARNING OUTCOMES:

  • Determination of main lithologies and volumes of each.
  • Calculation of porosity.
  • Detection of hydrocarbons, and quantification.
  • Learn systematic log interpretation procedure & real world practicalities.
  • Uses and limitations of main specialty logging tools.

 

COURSE CONTENT:

  • What is open hole well logging?
  • Basic rock properties
  • Well and wellbore environments
  • Lithology indicators and volume of shale
  • Porosity logs
  • Resistivity logs
  • Quick-look (qualitative) interpretation
