Well Placement

The main purpose of high angle and horizontal wells is to maximize reservoir contact and enhance well productivity. To plan and construct such wells requires real-time collaboration between geologists (who need quality formation evaluation data), drillers (who require considerable input from the geologists), and petrophysicists (who interpret the formation evaluation data during the drilling process in order to optimize well placement). This process is generally facilitated by the well placement coordinator.

Target Competencies:

  • Maximize Reservoir Contact 
  • Enhance Well Productivity 
  • Direction Drilling Concepts
  • MWD Position and Drilling-related Data
  • MWD Techniques and Tools

The course duration is approximately 20 hours .

Basic Production Logging

This course teaches you the use and limitations of a variety of production logging tools including spinner, temperature, noise, fluid injections and other tools.   

You will learn what results these tools yield, the interpretation assumptions that are integral to their designs, and how quality is affected by the acquisition process.  

You will also learn the fundamentals of production log interpretation with hands-on examples and an in-class workshop on interpreting single- and two-phase flow using production logs.  

You will learn how production logs can be used for the measurement of 3 phase fluid flow.

Target Competencies:

  • Well Completion
  • Well Productivity Optimization
  • Pressure Control System

Petrophysics and Fundamentals of Well Logs Interpretation

This course approach will help the participants to develop a good grounding in understanding and applying Well Logging Techniques. General principles of Physics are developed to explain the functioning of Modern Logging Tools. Wherever possible, the physics of Logging Measurements is related to everyday tools and appliances. Participants develop an appreciation for the constraints and Limitations of Operating in the Borehole Environment.

A number of actual Log Examples are related to basic principles in the description of Reservoir Properties such as Porosity, Mineralogy, Formation Factor, Saturation, and Hydrocarbon Type, for essentially Clean Reservoirs. Cross-plotting and Reconnaissance Techniques, the eyes of the part-time Log Interpreter, discriminate between Water, Oil, and Gas, quickly and efficiently. Error minimization Techniques, applicable only to computerized Log Analysis produce optimal results. Participants gain realistic experience by working in teams on a comprehensive Log Interpretation Exercise. 

 This Course is designated for Petrophysicists, Geologists, Geophysicists, Engineers, Technicians, or Anyone interested in a Solid understanding of the Principles of Borehole Geophysics.

Target Competencies:

  • Borehole Geophysics
  • Electrical Properties of earth Materials 
  • Reservoir/Non-reservoir Discrimination
  • Borehole Calipers 

The course duration is approximately 25 hours .

Introduction to Petrophysics

<

Petrophysics is fundamental to all aspects of the petroleum business. Principles, applications, and integration of petrophysical information for reservoir description will be discussed in depth. Through a combination of class discussion and exercises/ workshops, participants will learn how to conduct competent quick-look evaluations. Using data from open hole logs, logging-while-drilling, and core data you will evaluate porosity, permeability, and saturation in a variety of reservoirs. Knowing how to integrate petrophysical information with other data sources will improve participants’ ability to assess technical risk when examining hydrocarbon opportunities.

This course is designated for Geoscientists and engineers with less than twelve months experience using petrophysical data, and other technical staff at all experience levels wanting a fundamental background in the Petrophysics discipline.

Target Competencies:

  • Petrophysical Tools
  • Porosity 
  • Permeability
  • Log Analysis and integration

The course duration is approximately 15 hours .
