Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Online Training Course?

The certification of acquired data is a very critical aspect of wireline and Logging-while-Drilling (LWD) logging and is performed through the observation of key quality indicators. The main objective of this PetroKnowledge online training course is to make you aware of these quality indicators as well as the different techniques to solve commonly found issues at the wellsite.

This PetroKnowledge 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 common open hole logging technologies will be covered explaining their main applications and limitations. Basic petrophysical interpretation will be discussed with numerous examples and exercises in order to complement your knowledge to be able to perform a proper log QA/QC analysis.

This PetroKnowledge online training course will feature:

  • Explanation of petrophysical concepts and techniques.
  • Discussions on tools physical principles, applications, and QA/QC
  • Tool limitations on different borehole environments.
  • Metrology concepts and applications on wireline and LWD logs
  • Multiple log quality control exercises
