Borehole Image Logs - Interpretation and Applications

Borehole Image Logs - Interpretation and Applications

The Borehole Image Logs course is designed to provide an introduction to borehole image logs, focusing mainly on the interpretation and application of the most recent borehole image technology. This course will address data quality assessment and process practices. It will also present an interpretation workflow, focusing on sedimentology and structural geology, along with the methodology of interpretation.  

In addition, the use of borehole images for geomechanics and borehole stability analysis and their use in improved horizontal well placement, along with the importance of integration with other data and the pitfalls to avoid will be discussed. Participants will be provided with an awareness of the multiple applications of borehole image logs, their value and limitations with the assistance of exercises and examples from a variety of depositional settings. 

Suitability - Who should attend?

This course is suitable for those who are:

  • Geologists, petrophysicists, geophysicists or reservoir engineers
  • Technical or managerial staff involved in subsurface development, exploration or reservoir characterisation

Outcome / Qualification etc.

Upon completion of this course, participants will feel confident in their understanding of:

  • How to determine the type of borehole image log, data quality and to carry out a basic ‘desktop’ interpretation within minutes of receiving an image log plot
  • The information that can be extracted from a borehole image log
  • The interpretation process and the results delivered by consultants
  • How borehole image logs help with geomechanics and borehole stability
  • The strength of integration with other data and studies
