Who Should Attend
This entry-level course provides a broad overview of well logging methods and practices to earth geoscientists and engineers involved in the acquisition, interpretation, or use of well logs as well as prospectors who use well logs in their exploration & production decisions.
By the end of the course, participants should be able to accomplish the following:
- Scan a well log for quality control
- Define zones of interest on a log
- Implement basic log quality control and environmental corrections
- Determine Archie parameters and using to determine saturations
- Design and supervise a basic logging operation
- Decide where and when advanced logging technologies may be required
- Appreciate why occasionally data from cores and logs may be different to production data.
Open hole well logging is fundamental to the quantification of hydrocarbon resources during the exploration and appraisal phases and to reservoir delineation and surveillance during the development and production phases. The objective of this course is to provide attendants with a solid understanding of the principles and applications of open hole well logging. Topics include basic Petrophysics, planning and execution of logging operations, log quality control and basic environmental corrections, quick look techniques for determining zones of interest, determining Archie parameters and using to determine saturations, and non-standard log evaluation methods for shaly sands, carbonates, etc. This is a practical course that will provide participants with information not normally covered in service company training seminars and to impart some interpretive skills gained by the instructor in over 25 years of experience.
