Course description

Foundations of Petrophysics - FPP - Virtual, Blended Course

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 series of online learning activities, participants will learn how to conduct competent quicklook 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.

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.
