Sedimentology Petrographic Analysis 1

PETROPHYSICS COURSE (by DONALD G. HILL, Ph.D)

ABOUT THE COURSE

The main objectives of this 5-day course are to understand the following topics:

  • The petrophysical properties and corresponding logging methods,
  • The fundamentals of log interpretation and formation evaluation,
  • The link between petrophysics and seismic reservoir characterization tools.
Sedimentology Petrographic Analysis 2

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • The importance of petrophysics in the workflow of reservoir evaluation and characterization.
  • The physical reservoir properties (porosity, saturation, fluids, permeability) required for clastic and carbonate rock evaluation.
  • The physical background or well logging methods and the response with respect to reservoir characterization (you will learn to select the optimal log combination).
  • Understand fundamental techniques of log interpretation, learn a quick-look interpretation.
  • Apply the course content on practical examples (sandstone and carbonate profile).
