Course description:

Upon completion of this advanced training course, students will gain knowledge about modern methods of processing and interpreting well logs, as well as automated interpretation of well logging data in modern software products.

During the course, topics such as entering corrections into well logging curves (GR, induction logging, lateral logging), lithology and saturation, calculation of reservoir properties are discussed in detail. Students of this course will become familiar with the theory and will carry out practical exercises on the basics of geological modeling based on well logging data.

Practical part:

  • Well logs interpretation in Prime or TechLog software
  • Determination of lithology, calculation of porosity, saturation
  • Basics of using well logs in building geological models

Category of trainees:

Managers and specialists of Oil and Gas E&P Companies
