This training course presents workflow that makes use available geo-mechanical and geophysical data for reservoir characterization. The methodology incorporates soft computing tools as well as geo-statistical simulation techniques to improve the property estimates as well as overall characterization efficacy. The course also includes extensive hands-on training and problem solving using public domain software.
Who Should Attend?
This course is designed for professional reservoir engineers, petrophysicists, geophysicists, geologists and asset managers
