Who Should Attend
The course is designed to be of benefit to geologists, engineers and technical support people who are involved in oil and gas exploration and production in carbonate reservoirs. As the title states, this is a quick guide that concentrates on methods used to analyze carbonate reservoirs. It is an advanced course and assumes the course participants are already well informed about basic well logging principles.
At the conclusion of the two day course, participants should be able to do the following:
- Scan a well log to determine zones that potentially could be hydrocarbon productive.
- Examine pre-processed and calculated well log data and be able to answer the following questions.
- What is the carbonate pore type or types?
- Is the reservoir water-wet or oil-wet?
- Is the reservoir hydrocarbon productive?
- If hydrocarbon productive will the production be oil or gas? Do you expect a water-cut?
The course begins with a short review of the basic principles of carbonate well logging. Next are a series of lectures on the different carbonate pore types and the logging methods used to differentiate the various pore types and to determine their hydrocarbon productive potential. A flow chart is provided that will aid the participants’ understanding of the sequence used in analyzing carbonate reservoirs. At conclusion, seventeen problems will be presented that will be analyzed by the participants. In six of the problems, they will be required to do some of the calculations. They will then answer the four question outlined above for each of the seventeen problems. Next, they use a cross plot to help verify their pore type, wettability, and hydrocarbon productive potential conclusions determined in the seventeen problems.
