The course gives a broad overview of petrophysics, respectively formation evaluation and its impact on your business such as resources/reserves determination, reservoir management and well integrity. It covers the basic concepts (rocks and their porosity, permeability and rock texture), history of logging, tool theory, logging operations (incl. MWD-LWD), log evaluation methods and their uncertainties. The integration of core data (petrophysical measurements plus petrography), test results and cased hole data will also be discussed during the course. Last but not least, never forget the properly structured final report!
