Geoscientists, engineers and other technical staff at all experience levels wanting a fundamental background in the petrophysics discipline.
About the course
Petrophysics is extremely important in the oil & gas business. Petrophysics and well log analysis help geologists to quantify and understand the distribution of reservoir properties in the subsurface. For reservoir engineers it is essential to build reliable models. The concepts for a wide range of applied tools must be understood for any accurate well evaluation. The courses deal with fundamental petrophysical relations, principles, modern interpretation methods and core measurements. All commonly used data is briefly presented with explanation of how it is acquired and where it fits in the overall scheme. The formation evaluation essentials of determining reservoir rock, porosity, saturation, fluid type, contacts and permeability are explained in the broader context of a companies reserves and profits.
