This course represents the complete carbonate & fracture evaluation Recipe, from Quick Look log analysis to full Core-Log-Test integration. It presents a systematic, disciplined plan of action for the acquisition and integration of carbonate petrophysical data, highlighting problems and explaining solutions. The course provides a much needed systematic process for staff faced with the daunting prospect of managing carbonate & fracture, or other 'complex' reservoirs. Non-petrophysicists will learn how to quickly check geo-model input with 'Greenlists'.
Course Level: Skill Instructor: Mark Deakin
Designed for you, if you are...
A petrophysicist, any geologist, operations geologist, engineer or core analyst who uses or creates petrophysical results for carbonate or 'complex' reservoirs
Basic principles are reviewed; however a year’s experience in formation evaluation is desirable.
How we build your confidence
All data is integrated, from drilling and LWD to well tests and the latest hi-tech logs via a recipe which provides a definitive set of results and a secure basis for decisions - a template for evaluating any complex reservoir
The course explains how the physical characteristics of carbonates - tight, fractured or permeable - present failure points for classical log analysis
How to drill, core, log, test and then integrate specifically to address these failure points is explained via a condensed learning session of interleaved theory, PetroDB-Vault IP demos, workshops and movies
Drilling data, core, SCAL, logs, LithoScanner, NMR, Dielectric, Sigma, Acoustic, Image-logs and MDTs are all briefly explained and fitted together to form the definitive solution for any given data set
