Course description

Mudlogging – MDLG

Mud logging, also known as surface logging, is the creation of a detailed record of a borehole by examining the bits of rock or sediment brought to the surface by the circulating drilling medium (most commonly mud). Mud logging is usually performed by a third-party mud logging company. This provides well owners and producers with information about the lithology and fluid content of the borehole while drilling. Historically it is the earliest type of well log.

Who should attend?

New hire geologists and geophysicists; and reservoir, petroleum, and drilling engineers.
