Course Description:

Analyzing data derived from well logging and core-plug to understand the heterogeneity of reservoir properties in geologic formations is paramount in petrophysical rock classification and characterization. This course aims to present various concepts of core and well log data acquisition, analysis, interpretation, integration, and their use in petroleum exploration and production.  On completion of the course, the participants will be able to: (i) interpret well logs and core data to estimate petrophysical and compositional properties of different formations (ii) understand the physics of nuclear, electric, electromagnetic, nuclear-magnetic, acoustic, imaging, technical, LWD and MWD logs (iii) understand core and plug data acquisition and analysis (iv) understand the principle of petroleum geo-statistics for reservoir characterization (v) perform geo-statistical integration of core-plug and well log data to build accurate models describing porosity, permeability and saturation distributions in reservoir modeling and simulation. The course includes extensive hands-on training and problem solving using public domain software.
