Core Analysis Fundamentals and Technology - 4-Day Course by HOT Engineering

This training course introduces participants to established principles of modern core analysis including advanced imaging techniques.

The course covers the complete handling of the core along with procedures and tools for core measurements. The topics and engineering examples extend from sample selection, data acquisition and quality control to analysis, reporting, simple modelling and integration.
Upon completion participants will be skilled and ready to design, implement and evaluate a successful coring and core analysis program.

Participants will gain confidence through the following training methodologies:

  • Concise summaries of the techniques, equipment and measurement basics for conventional, special and imaging rock property measurements are provided
  • You learn the best combination of tests and techniques for an optimal core analysis program
  • You learn to evaluate and analyse the raw data, calculate the uncertainty and incorporate the results

Suitability - Who should attend?

This course is suitable for you if you are:

  • A geologist, geophysicist, reservoir engineer or petrophysicist who will recommend or use core analysis measurements
  • A core analyst, formation damage specialist or laboratory technician working to develop improved laboratory measurements and procedures
  • A database professional tasked with developing core and rock property databases

Outcome / Qualification etc.

By the end of the course you will feel confident in your understanding of:

  • Coring operations, core types, sizes and limitations
  • Core handling procedures and non-destructive qualitative and quantitative core characterisation
  • Techniques, uncertainty and quality control for routine core analyses
  • Resistivity and nuclear magnetic resonance techniques and fundamentals for saturation measurements and models
  • Capillarity and pore structure methods
  • Experimental techniques and uncertainty for multi-phase displacement mechanisms and specialised tests for formation evaluation
