Course Description  

This practical 3-day Introduction to Log Analysis workshop will illustrate log responses to rocks and their fluids. Once these simple relationships (common throughout the world) are understood, you can recognize permeability, hydrocarbons and identify rock and fluid types easily.

The session will also include illustrated techniques for recognizing log validity. Participants are encouraged to bring their own logs to complement existing real-life case studies. 

New subjects now covered in “Introduction to Log Analysis”:

The Introduction to Log Analysis course has now been updated to include an introduction to the evaluation of rocks with organically rich materials and with extremely low permeability. These potential reservoirs are sometimes referred to as a resource rock or “shales”. This section includes a discussion of geochemical logs and information from cores/log for Total Organic Carbon (TOC).

Since the success of fracture treatments are a significant part of the overall production for these reservoirs a section has been included on introduction to rock mechanics for both vertical and horizontal wells. In addition, current completion techniques for fracturing horizontal wells will be discussed.

A complete set of course materials and lunch is included in the Introduction to Log Analysis course.   

Who Should Attend  

Professionals in drilling, production, geosciences and completion technology utilize this program. This practical class will be a good review for those who have had log applications in the past and a good introduction for those who have had little application of logs before.
