Starting with learning the basic logs (GR, Density, Neutron, Sonic, Resistivity, etc.) acquired through wireline and memory downhole tools, the physics behind each tool, and moving on to how each tool measures an aspect of the reservoir. Hands-on exercises will be used to describe the calculation of reservoir parameters (Vsh, Phit, Swt, etc.) commonly used in mapping of exploration plays. If time permits, we will explore more complex tools and readings. At the end, I hope everyone grasps exactly what the logs are reading in the subsurface and how each log curve is used in calculating petrophysical reservoir parameters.
This course is targeted to all geologists who want to learn how to interpret basic log curves and be able to relate them back to the reservoir they are exploring. Understanding of basic rock types (sandstone, limestone, dolomite, etc.) and their constituent mineralogy and how pore space is represented in the subsurface will be required. Oh, and there will be math………. I know how geologists LOVE math (bring a calculator, not kidding)!
Who Should Attend:
University students with a interest in Petroleum geology. If you have already take a petroleum geology course/petrophysics course, please feel free to attend, you can always learn more!
