Advanced Petrophysics

Advanced Petrophysics: 5-Day Training Course for Oil & Gas Professionals

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.

Suitability - Who should attend?

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.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

Upon successful completion of this course, delegates will be able to understand:

  • How petrophysical data is managed and stored
  • How to plan and report petrophysical studies
  • Computerised deterministic interpretation workflows
  • The crucial role of porosity in interpretation
  • Calibration of log porosity to core data
  • Derivation of saturation-height functions from log or core data
  • Derivation of core based log permeability predictors
  • How to recognise where advanced interpretation methods are needed
  • Shaly sand analysis
  • Thin bed/ low resistivity pay interpretation
  • The use of log based facies/classification to improve interpretations
  • Probabilistic multi-mineral interpretation
  • Characteristics and interpretation of NMR logs

Course Trainer

John Fletcher, Consultant Petrophysicist

John has over 24 years’ experience working for BP on a wide range of fields around the world, providing interpretations and technical support in many different environments.

A physicist by background, John has specialist skills in operational petrophysics and seismic rock properties particularly around the use and calibration of time lapse seismic.

In the last four years of his career with BP, John was the leader of the petrophysics team responsible for BP’s North Sea assets and coached and mentored a number of recent graduate entrants to the discipline as well as more experienced team members.
