Why Choose this Training Course?

Participants on this 5-day intensive PetroKnowledge Fluvial Sedimentation training course range from petrophysicists, geologists, geophysicists or engineers who use core, borehole images, log data, core data and production data to produce or understand facies produced in a fluvial sedimentary environment. The goal of this training course is to learn to develop a G&G workflow which utilizes a variety of geological data essential to produce an accurate fluvial reservoir model.

By choosing this PetroKnowledge training course, the participants will be able to utilize all forms of data that can be used to build a fluvial geological model. Ranging from mud logs, rock cuttings, thin-sections, core, borehole images, log data, seismic and geological analogues. The participant will build and interpret facies logs, to create detailed facies maps deposited within a fluvial environment. Participants will be able, despite their different working sectors, to deal with fluvial sedimentary models, interpret facies logs and understands varying sand body architecture and geometries. As well as learning about the different tools needed to acquire the most accurate data to derive accurate facies models.
