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.
