Advanced Well Log Interpretation

HOT EngineeringAdvanced Well Log Interpretation: 5-Day Training Programme

This interactive, applications-driven course will highlight the techniques and principles of advanced well log interpretation. Participants will learn the main uses and limitations of advanced logging tools as well as their interpretation and get to perform a complex lithology formation evaluation.

The course will explore the tools response explained from their physical principles as well as their relationship with the rock and fluid properties; most existing open hole logging technologies will be covered explaining their main applications and limitations. Advanced interpretation methods will be discussed with numerous examples and exercises including complex lithology interpretation techniques. At the end of the course we will hold a mini-workshop on optimum logging program selection based on minimum set of logs needed for a proper evaluation, company budget and tools’ limitations.
This training course will feature:

  • Discussions on tools physical principles and applications
  • Tool limitations on different borehole environments
  • Tips and examples to identify and understand common logging issues
  • Explanation of petrophysical concepts and techniques for advanced formation evaluation
  • Application of interpretation methods in several examples and exercises

This training course will utilise a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented, the sessions will include visual, auditory and kinesthetic elements to cover the three different learning modalities. The daily sessions will be highly interactive and participative. This involves regular discussion of applications as well as hands-on exercises that will be solved manually and/or using Microsoft Excel.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This training programme is best suited for the:

  • An engineer in the exploration and production department
