Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Training Course?

This Advanced Well Log Interpretation online 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 online 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 online training course will feature:

  • Discussions on tools physical principles and applications
