Course description

Special Petrophysical Tools: NMR and Image Logs Core

This skill module introduces Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Logging, interpretation of Borehole Images and Dip Meter Data, and how permeability is measured in both logs and cores. The skill module covers NMR logging principles and interpretation and the importance and application of borehole image and dipmeter data.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Geoscientists and engineers with less than twelve months experience using petrophysical data, Ideal for other technical staff and non-technical staff (e.g., management, drilling operations, technical support staff, finance, legal, IT, supply chain management, and others) at all experience levels wanting a basic background in the petrophysics discipline. This skill module lays the foundation for effective communications between the Subsurface Team and everyone else in the E&P Industry including Service Company and Government employees.
