Modern Well Log Interpretation Training Course

The first two days cover all standard and modern well-logging measurements. The third day focuses on how the tool measurements are used to determine important formation properties related to exploration and well completion. The fourth day covers Specialty logs. The fifth day covers well logs used to evaluate producing wells. Both Wireline and LWD methods are covered and differentiated.

Successful completion of the course will give participants a good understanding of the basic logging measurements and interpretation methods. Discussion of environmental affects will show participants how to access log quality and identify data acquisition problems. Emphasis is placed on types of logs and their usage in the drilling, completion and production phases of the well life.

This course is intended for entry-level engineers and geologists/geophysicists, as well as for experienced geo-scientists and technical assistants working with, or needing to understand better, the principles of log interpretation and/or to update themselves on the range of log measurements and techniques now available to them.

Although the course is appropriate for both engineers and geologists/geophysicists, the emphasis and level can be changed depending upon the participants’ requirements and backgrounds.
