Course description

Petrophysics is fundamental to all aspects of the petroleum business. Principles, applications, and integration of petrophysical information for reservoir description will be discussed in depth. Through a combination of class discussion and exercises/workshops, participants will learn how to conduct competent quick-look evaluations. Using data from open hole logs, logging-while-drilling, and core data you will evaluate porosity, permeability, and saturation in a variety of reservoirs. Knowing how to integrate petrophysical information with other data sources will improve participants' ability to assess technical risk when examining hydrocarbon opportunities.

This course is also available through e-learning via PetroAcademy.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Geoscientists and engineers with less than twelve months' experience using petrophysical data and other technical staff at all experience levels wanting a fundamental background in the petrophysics discipline.

Graduate Reservoir Engineer, United States
Liked walking through how to read the logs and what they measure. It's very useful to understand how to use the logs in combination to generate understanding about the logged intervals.
Geologist, Denmark
All subjects received ample attention and the integration of subjects, methods, log-types, etc. was excellent. Exercises were great.
Good integration of presentations and exercises. It was a very good way to make sure you understand.
