Special Core Analysis Workshop

Sale!

£450.00

By the end of the course the Attendees should know and able to:
– Know about the hydraulic flow units and reservoir quality parameters.
– Know more about the electric properties of rocks.
– Know more about resistivity of rocks and measuring Archie’s parameters.
– Increase their knowledge on relative permeability applications.
– Measure wettability Index using Amott, USBM and combination.
– Know about the capillary pressure (MICP) tests.
– Measure capillary pressure using porous plate, mercury injection and Centrifuge.

Description

The course aims to increase the knowledge of geologists, geophysicists, and others who are working in the field of oil and natural gas production.

This course covers the whole range of special core analyses and their applications.

The course starts with an overview of the reservoir rock properties and reservoir hydraulic flow units.

This is an essential factor as a background to the various logging techniques and their interpretations.

The attendees will feel that they became more professional, and know more about the geologic description and exploration of the underground rocks/reservoirs using the well logging techniques.

They will be able to evaluate the reservoirs and assess their performance. The comprehensive course documentation has been designed as a useful guide for future reference.

Who should attend?

New recruits engineers who are following Reservoir Engineering Development framework. In addition, the course is designed for geologists, geophysicists, well site Geologists, Drilling Engineers, Stratigraphers, Geochemists, petroleum engineers and particularly petrophysicists as well as the others who are involved in the field of oil and natural gas production.
Training Needs.
This is a hands-on course that will focus on why pore geometry must be the focal point for carbonate petrophysical analysis. Participants will work with petrographic information, mineralogy
data, routine core analysis, capillary pressure, electrical rock properties and rock typing. The importance of Core-Log integration and cross calibration will be shown, as well as the reduction of
uncertainty in computed reservoirs properties.
