Basic Well Log Analysis

11-15 July 2016
  |  
Golden, Colorado, United States

The course assumes no logging knowledge and seeks to establish an understanding of basic petrophysical measurements and interpretation techniques which can be applied to routine tasks, and upon which more complex and advanced information and interpretive techniques can be built.

The course:

  • Uses a "hands-on" approach to basic openhole well log analysis and interpretation, where common sets of logs are used in ongoing exercises and final problems to illustrate complete and coherent interpretations.
  • Focuses on the traditional interpretation targets of lithology, porosity, and fluid saturation, but also touches on other applications of the measurements.
  • Introduces a variety of interpretation techniques: numerical to visual (pattern recognition), and the use of some older techniques in the context of the availability of newer, more extensive, data.
  • Introduces the participants to the evaluation of shale gas reservoirs through the concepts of reservoir and completion quality, using common logging suites and more advanced measurements.

The course strives to provide a strong and coherent foundation for the understanding of other, specialized interpretation techniques involving well log data, which are not covered here.

Course notes will be provided in digital format on USB flash drive only, so electronic devices with a USB port are required for all courses. If you do not have access to an electronic device with a USB port, please contact the AAPG Education Dept. for an alternate method to download the digital course notes.
