Course Information:


The three-day course covers the fundamentals of log analysis for understanding open-hole logs and gaining immediate practical skills in formation evaluation. Hydrocarbon evaluation, porosity and permeability estimation are covered, together with rock typing and pay assessment. Methods to integrate core data, drill-cuttings reports, DST results, and production information with logs are described. Log quality control and normalization issues are also discussed. Participants are required to bring either a calculator or a laptop computer (please be sure to fully charge laptop batteries prior to each day) for all 3 course days. Excel freeware log analysis software is provided.

A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.
