Introduction

This interactive, applications-driven 5-day training seminar will highlight the techniques and principles of advanced well log interpretation for oil industry professionals who needs to deal with wireline and/or LWD logs in their daily job.

The training seminar 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 training seminar, 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 seminar 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

Objectives

By the end of this training seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the physical principles of most existing logging tools
  • Apply basic quality control techniques to validate logging data
  • Know the main applications and limitations of the different tool readings
  • Perform a quantitative formation evaluation on a complex lithology
  • Understand the uses of advanced logging tools in complex lithology interpretation

Training Methodology

This training seminar 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.

Organisational Impact

The organization will benefit because:

  • Having their personnel trained on log interpretation will help reduce human mistakes and improve efficiency
  • Their personnel will know how to choose the optimum logging program based on company budget and objectives achievement
  • Their personnel will be able to better assess data quality and integrity
  • Their personnel motivation will increase as they understand better some critical data that is needed for their daily job

Personal Impact

Attendees will gain by participation in this training seminar as a result of:

  • Obtaining a full understanding of logging tools principles and applications
  • Learning how to choose the optimum logging program based on objectives and company budget
  • Learning the principles and key indicators for log quality assurance and quality control
  • Learning basic and advanced methods and techniques for log interpretation

Who Should Attend?

This training seminar is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:

  • Engineers in exploration and production departments
  • Geologists, geophysicist and petrophysicist
  • Petroleum, reservoir and drilling engineers
  • In general, all other oil & gas industry professionals who are involved in logging data interpretation and validation
