    Advanced Petrophysical Reservoir Characterization - Core-Log Integration - RILS - V43020

    This version of Advanced Petrophysics Reservoir Characterization - Core/Log Integration  is highly interactive it can be customized to fit the need of clients. We recommend maintaining the key points, however, the delivery schedule will be adjusted to each client. The general version of this course can be delivered as a public offering.

    As a remote instructor delivered course it consist of 12 to 14 modules that are delivered in 4 hour sessions with a 1 hour optional group coaching session (on selected days). Alternatively, this course can be delivered in a traditional class room in 5 days.

    The key objectives for this advanced course are to demonstrate Applied Reservoir Petrophysics and Characterization and Core/Log integration from a pore scale through dynamic modeling. Exploration opportunities, such as identifying by-passed pay and finding new resources in existing fields can lead to new production.

    This course consists of reviewing special core analysis and the basics of log analysis, introducing 4 common methods to determine petrophysical rock types, discusses pore geometry, permeability predictions, capillary pressure analysis, saturation height models. Special core analysis methods such as electrical rock properties, capillary pressure, high pressure mercury injection, wettability and a brief introduction to relative permeability are included. This course shows how advanced flow units can be used in a full field 3-D model.

    Case studies and various SPE/SPWLA papers will be presented that show clastic, carbonate and complex reservoir systems.

    Subsurface professionals that are working on creating static or dynamic reservoir models.

    Learning objectives for Applied Reservoir Petrophysics and Characterization include Core-Log Integration: 1. A review of why petrophysical rock types are important and why "water saturation is not an accident!", and a brief review of capillary pressure and electrical rock properties 2. Various log based Sw relationships are presented and evaluated 3. A permeability prediction work-flow is introduced in an advanced workshop 4. A capillary saturation prediction SHM work-flow will be introduced. 4. Petrophysical Rock Types and verfication techniques are intrpduced.  The importance of using SCAL Data will be discussed (Drainage and imibibion relative permeabilitiies curves), Electrical Rock Properties and Mercury Injection Capillary Pressure will be covered. The final day includes a core-log intgeration workshop participants determine petrophysical rock types, saturation prediction with SHM, facies and flow units. The focus of the final workshop shows why it is important for petrophysics to go beyound log analysis. A key learning is sucessful dynamic simulation modelling is based on cross-discipline integration.

    A basic understanding or log analysis, routine core analysis and an awarness level of special core analysis.
