This course is the VILT condensed version of the industry standard IPRC course. The course will teach you how to evaluate reservoirs and quickly identify flawed results. Robust petrophysical results are achieved by the logical, systematic integration of all relevant data - new and old - which is extremely cost-effective compared to the errors resulting from a too-focused, fashionable analysis of part data sets. Integration places each data item in its proper context. This replaces the need to run irrelevant logs, explains apparent data conflicts and provides the correct answer faster.
This course, evolved from a PhD in petrophysics and 30 years of consulting and training, demonstrates how robust answers are achieved by the logical integration of diverse data. Pay and reserves are best addressed by disciplined, logical processes for porosity, saturation, permeability and fluid contacts. Low contrast pay, clastics and carbonates are evaluated by straight forward techniques which outperform any log analysis with direct, plain-to-see results. The integration of all relevant data, including PetroDB’s 30,000 core plug database, is clearly mapped out with the crucial Petrophysics to Geomodel checks set out.
This course, presented over 250 times, was the first public integrated petrophysics course (Jan1990) and has been continuously updated with new data and methods to mirror the modern petrophysicist’s real world experience.Course Structure:
