Advanced Reservoir Monitoring
This immersive workshop teaches you how to interpret your most difficult reservoir monitoring scenarios and to diagnose unique reservoir behaviors not included in classical interpretation techniques. Focused on reservoir monitoring logging techniques, this course teaches you specific strategies for the use and interpretation of pulsed neutron logging, formation resistivity measurements (Rt) behind steel and non-conductive casing, pressure measurements, and fluid sampling behind casing. Through a hands-on interactive workshop, using your data and problems, you learn how to adjust your interpretation techniques for reservoir and field-wide phenomenon, especially in water flooding operations.
