This course will teach you how to evaluate reservoirs and quickly identify flawed results. Robust reserves and simulation are achieved by the logical, systematic integration of all relevant data. A quality interpretation is extremely cost-effective compared with data acquisition or development mistakes and essential with today’s complex reservoirs and data sets. Proper integration replaces the need to run expensive, irrelevant logs explains apparent data conflicts and provides the correct answer faster, strengthening your position as an operator and competent petrophysicst. By contrast, stand-alone log analysis often results in wrong decisions and weakens your position in the eyes of your business partners and colleagues.
This course, evolved over 25 years of petrophysical consulting and training, demonstrates how robust answers are achieved by the logical integration of diverse data. Pay and reserves are addressed first by Quick Look Log Analysis and then by a disciplined, logical process to optimize the interpretation of Porosity, Saturation, Permeability and Fluid Contacts – the basis of Reserves. Low Contrast Pay, clastics and carbonates are evaluated by straight forward integration techniques which outperform log analysis with direct, plain to see results. The integration of Mudlogs, LWD, Wireline, Facies / Rock Types, SCAL, NMR, Dielectric, MDTs and Well tests are explained via the author’s 28,000 core plug PetroDB-WEB software. Finally, the crucial Petrophysics to Geomodel checks is clearly set out.
