Course description

Formation testing and sampling tools (FTs) with wireline and while-drilling are widely used in exploration/appraisal and reservoir development projects. Over the past two decades, modern tools, such as MDT, RCI, RDT, and FRT, have emerged to become as one of the critical formation evaluation means in drilling projects with high cost/risk and high reward environments. In recent years, FT tools while-drilling provide alternatives of formation testing at earlier timing, flexible operational sequences in complicated wellbores access to reservoirs. FT pressure data and fluid samples are acquired for predicting hydrocarbon resource sizes and accessing key development uncertainties. This course is designed to satisfy the interdisciplinary needs of geoscientists, petrophysicists, and reservoir engineers with an increasing use of FT data. Practical and hands-on exercises are worked in the class. In the ends, the participants are expected to apply the learned skills in maximizing chances of acquiring quality data with improved formation evaluation outcome certainty.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Geoscientists, petrophysicists, wellsite supervisors, reservoir engineers, and geodata technologists of multidisciplinary formation evaluation and development teams engaging in explorations, appraisals, and field development activities.
