Petrophysics, Quick Look and Log Quality Control

This course covers the following topics:

  • Geology of Carbonates and Clastics
  • Gamma Ray (GR) and Spontaneous Potential: Tool physics and applications to estimate clay volume, clay type and formation water salinities.
  • Porosity and Lithology: Density and Neutron tool physics and applications
  • Acoustics: Tool physics and applications for rock mechanics, well bore stability, and secondary porosity
  • Resistivity Measurements: Tool physics of Shallow Rxo, Laterolog and Induction and High Technology resistivity tools.
  • Introduction to High Technology Tools: NMR, Borehole Imaging, Dielectric  and Wireline Formation Testing.
  • Interpretations: This covers the evaluation of:
    • Clay Volume (Vsh, Vcl),
    • Estimating the parameters of “m” and “n” in the Archie Equation,
    • Quick look techniques to estimate the oil/water, gas/water and oil/gas contacts, salinity estimations of formation water and filtrate water, and unmoved hydrocarbon zones
    • Estimation of water saturations in shaly-sands.
