Tool Physics- Standard Logging Tools

This course provides a solid foundation and knowledge of the various logging tools and applications. It demystifies most of the uncertainties regarding logging and the applications and limitations of the various logging tools; it includes 1-2 hours daily of workshop examples.

 

 

Day 1
  • Basics of Logging:

Day 2
  • The Spontaneous Potential: The physics of the SP log and its applications.
  • The density and Photoelectric log: Physics and applications to measure porosity and determine lithology.
  • The Neutron Log: its applications to determine porosity- The sigma applications to estimate "n" at downhole conditions.
  • Pulsed Neutron Logging: capture and inelastic modes
Day 3
  • The applications of the density-neutron log to determine porosity, lithology, shale volume, hydrocarbon trends and shale distribution (dispersed or laminated)
  • Resistivity Measurements: Tool physics of Shallow Rxo, Laterolog and Induction and High Technology resistivity tools. The High Technology Laterolog and Induction logs use for ward modeling to give five resistivity data at different depth of investigations.
