This course introduces participants to established principles of modern core analysis including advanced imaging techniques. The course covers the complete handling of the core along with procedures and tools for core measurements. The topics and engineering examples extend from sample selection, data acquisition and quality control to analysis, reporting, petrophysical modelling and integration. Upon completion participants will be skilled and ready to design, implement and evaluate a successful coring and core analysis program.
