Course description

Integration of Rocks, Log and Test Data – ILC

This course provides the background necessary to address the more complex reservoir evaluation and productivity challenges within exploration, field appraisal, and field development. The key fundamentals of rock properties, logging tools, and engineering data required to solve these problems are reviewed. The concepts are illustrated with a series of real world examples that become increasingly complex as knowledge is gained in the class. Emphasis is placed on solving problems in a workshop format.

"Everything was just the right amount of depth. NMR and Capillary Pressure was fantastic! Shaly sands data integration was fantastic too!" - Geologist, United States

"Right course at right time. Also I like the actual examples of seemingly misleading logs." - Reservoir Engineer, United States

Who should attend?

Petrophysicists, petroleum reservoir engineers, geologists, and geophysicists who have a basic understanding of petrophysics, geology, and engineering and need a more advanced understanding of how to integrate the different data sets together to more completely understand reservoir performance. It is recommended that participants have a basic knowledge of logging fundamentals. The basics of logging will be reviewed in the class.
