Course overview

This course will introduce the participants to the Advanced Interpretation Methods of Petrophysics and Formation Evaluation, which is an indispensable discipline in petroleum exploration and production. In particular it will focus on the integration of Petrophysical data with conventional core data, as well as with seismic data for Reservoir Modelling and Reservoir Characterisation.

The course is designed for:

  • Exploration Geologists
  • Production Geologists
  • Well-site Geologists
  • Operations Geologists
  • Well Data Managers
  • Geophysicists
  • Petrophysicists
  • Geotechnicians
  • Others who use log data on a daily basis

Learning objectives

  • To undergo a basic review of the logging tools as well as the measurements made by the logging tools, and the transformation of the measured data into useful reservoir parameters such as Porosity, Permeability, and Water saturation for hydrocarbon reserves estimations
  • To understand the link and/or relation between Petrophysics and seismic interpretation, seismic reservoir characterisation and static reservoir modelling
