This class is part of the Heriot-Watt University Distance Learning Masters of Petroleum Engineering program. It is intended to give a broad understanding of the principles of Formation Evaluation. The Course aims are to give the participant: an understanding of the concepts of formation evaluation and well logging; an understanding of the physical principles of the tools used in logging; and an ability to characterize formations based on interpretation of well logs. More specifically, by the end of the course, the participant will: Understand the properties of rocks and fluids that produce characteristic signals; be able to read and interpret a well log; be able to analyze the measurements and correct for environmental factors; and be able to interpret the log to discern porosity, water saturation, lithology, and hydrocarbon content
This course forms part of the Heriot-Watt Distance Learning MSc Petroleum Engineering. Classes may be attended by individuals who seek to understand better the subject but who are not registered for the degree course.
Geared to technical professionals, including engineers, geoscientists, or operations personnel, who need an introduction to technical theory and techniques.
Trainee Petroleum engineers and specialist service company engineers.
The concepts of formation evaluation and well logging; the physical principles of the tools used in logging; how to characterize formations based on interpretation of well logs; how the properties of rocks and fluids produce characteristic signals; reading and interpreting well logs; analyzing the measurements and correcting for environmental factors and interpreting logs to estimate porosity, water saturation, lithology, and hydrocabon content.
A general Knowledge of Petroleum Geoscience would be useful.
