The advanced-level petrophysics course reviews complex methods for petrophysical interpretation, such as mineral volume methodologies, shaly sand and thin bed techniques. Participants will learn how to organise data, plan and report petrophysical studies, as well as looking at the integration of log and core datasets across multiple wells.
The programme enables participants to plan and report petrophyscial studies, explores the role of porosity in interpretation and explains where advanced interpretation methods are required. The course also covers thin bed/low resistivity pay interpretation and probabilistic multi-mineral interpretation.
The advanced petrophysics training course is suitable for Petrophysicists and others involved in the oil and gas subsurface management life cycle, with experience in formation evaluation or candidates who have previously attended Lloyd's Register’s Deterministic Petrophysics course, who wish to deepen their practical knowledge and understanding of advanced petrophysical interpretation methods and advanced logging tools.
Upon successful completion of this course, delegates will be able to understand:

Please contact Lloyd's Register for more detailed information about course contents.
Ed is Discipline Head of Petrophysics at Lloyds Register (LR) and holds a BEng (Hons) Chemical Engineering from Nottingham University and a MSc Reservoir Evaluation and Management from Heriot Watt University. He has a broad background encompassing operations, training, technology, software and consultancy.
Following graduation from Nottingham University in 1996, Ed joined Western Atlas (now Baker Hughes) as a wireline field engineer gaining operational experience in the North Sea, US, West Africa and the South Atlantic. On leaving the field he spent 3 years as a field engineer training instructor in Scotland before moving to Baker Hughes’ Technology Center in Houston as a technology transfer engineer with a focus on formation testing and sampling.
Ed returned to the UK to undertake a MSc at Heriot Watt. On completion he joined Senergy (now LR) as a software development petrophysicist for Interactive Petrophysics (IP), taking on the additional responsibility of Customer Support Manager when Schlumberger SIS ended a relationship to provide technical support for IP.
Ed subsequently moved into the consultancy undertaking petrophysical field studies and support, and took on the role of Team Lead. After a brief move to Baker Hughes as a Senior Petrophysical Advisor supporting advanced petrophysics products (wireline and LWD), he returned to LR as Discipline Head of Petrophysics.
Ed is also Technical Manager for our MSc Petrophysics and Formation Evaluation programme in partnership with the University of Aberdeen.
The cost of this Advanced Petrophysics training course is £1,950 + VAT per participant.
