Course description

Structural and Stratigraphic Interpretation of Dipmeters and Borehole Imaging Logs - In-house training by PetroSkills

This course can be conducted on site at your location exclusively for your staff. Dipmeters are micro-resistivity logs that detect the orientations of bed boundaries and borehole elongations. Borehole-imaging logs provide video, density, gamma-ray, acoustic and/or electrical images of the borehole face. Dipmeters and borehole images can be run in water-based or oil-based mud

Outcome / Qualification etc.

This in-house training course has the following outcomes:
  • Interpret dipmeters and borehole-imaging logs and understand the physical principles behind them
  • Detect and quantify faults and fractures, determine in situ stress orientations, improve horizontal well placement, provide input into flow simulations
  • Determine paleocurrent orientations, define stratigraphic compartments, quantify vuggy porosity, detect thin beds, apply image data in reservoir characterization

Training Course Content

This in-house training programme can be customised to meet your specific requirements. It typically covers:

  • Applications and types of dipmeters and borehole images
  • Data acquisition and processing
  • Quality control and artifacts
  • Oil based mud and logging while drilling applications
  • Generation and use of stereonets and rose diagrams
  • Quantitative analysis using cumulative dip plots, vector plots, and SCAT plots
  • Fractures, faults, micro-faults, and unconformities
  • Sub-seismic scale faults
  • Determination of fracture spacing and fracture porosity
  • In situ stress from borehole breakout and drilling induced fractures
  • Thin bed analysis and net-sand counts
  • Carbonate porosity and facies interpretation
  • Application of image data in sequence stratigraphy
  • Sedimentology from borehole images: burrows, cross beds, scoured surfaces, slumps
  • Determination of paleocurrent directions
  • Interpretation of borehole images in various depositional settings
  • Reservoir characterization using borehole images
  • Integration with seismic, NMR, and production logs
