Why Choose this Training Course?

This interactive, applications-driven 5-day Advanced Well Log Interpretation training course 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.

This PetroKnowledge training course 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 course, 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 course will feature:


Training Objectives

What are the Goals?

By the end of this training course, 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

Target Audience

Who is this Training Course for?

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

  • Exploration Engineers
  • Production Engineers
  • 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

Training Methods

How will this Training Course be Presented?

This training course 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.
