Special Core Analysis: Petrophysical Imaging Applications (RES44)


    This 3-day seminar skills participants in the analysis, application and integration of core computed tomography (CT) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) imaging techniques.
    The physics, equipment and data processing for CT and NMR measurements are reviewed and applied for reservoir characterisation and recovery examples.
    The course covers both basic and advanced applications extending from basic core depth shift considerations to core orientation and differentiation of rock fluid interactions.

    Course Level: Intermediate
    Instructor: Jim Funk

    Designed for you, if you are...

    • Geologists, geophysicists, reservoir engineers, or petrophysicsts recommending or directing core analysis measurements

    • Core analysts or formation damage specialists working to develop improved laboratory measurements and procedures

    How we build your confidence

    • Documentation of the techniques, equipment, measurements, and research for imaging and extraction of rock property measurements
    • You learn to evaluate and analyse the data and the incorporation of the results
