Capillary Pressure and Saturation Height Model Concepts For Reservoir Petrophysics

Capillary pressure and Saturation height Model Concepts for Reservoir Petrophsyics course is a VILT (virtually instructor led training) delivered in real time.  The course will be taught in 4 hour sessions over a 3 day period and is delivered using the WebEx platform”

This course enables participants to understand the fundamental concepts of capillary pressure from lab to saturation height model analysis. A pracitcal approach is used to discuss lab measurement options, standard corrections, determining fluid contacts and the free water level. Participants, complete a capillary pressure analysis and saturation height model based on petrophsyical rock types.  The final results are integrated  with flow and storage characteristics.  The concept workshops are completed using Excel, so the process is transparent to the users.
