Introduction to Production Logging and Reservoir Monitoring

This course introduces you to the basics of production logging and fluid mechanics. You will learn the variety of problems encountered in developing a producing asset both from a well and a field perspective. You will also learn the fundamentals of diagnosing these problems using production logging tools and techniques as well as how to minimize future occurrences using proactive reservoir monitoring techniques.

(A three day abbreviated version of this course is available by request.  Please contact your regional NExT office for more information.)
