|16 September 2019 - 20 September 2019||Houston||$ 4,150||Register →|
Who should attend?
Geologists, geophysicists, petrophysicists, and reservoir, petroleum engineers whose job requires a more extensive knowledge of core and log relations.
About the course
Petrophysics is the study of physical and chemical rock properties and their interactions with fluids. Petrophysical measurements help other disciplines such as geologist, geophysicists and reservoir engineers understand the reservoir porosity, permeability, lithology and water saturation. Core analysis is used to define porosity, permeability, fluid saturation and grain density of reservoir rock. During this course, concepts of routine and special core analysis and core measurement methodologies, how to link log interpretation to core data, image logs (FMI) and NMR will be discussed. The petrophysical rock properties such as porosity, permeability, lithology and fluid saturations and porosity-permeability relationship, effect of cementation exponent “m” and saturation exponent “n” on water saturation in carbonate rocks under reservoir pressure and temperature will be studied. The measurements and physics of well logging tool fundamentals and log measurement environments, applications and log interpretation methodologies will be presented. The role of petrophysics in reservoir characterization study and its interaction with other disciplines will be demonstrated.
This course will help to give the participants better understanding of log interpretation concepts including QC, log editing, environmental corrections, basic interpretation (deterministic method), advance interpretation (statistical method) and core-log integration for production optimization. The instructor will establish a case study from an undertaken field development carbonate formation study to illustrate core-log integration
