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:

  • 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
