Fundamentals of Well Logging and Petrophysics

A 5-day short course in a classroom with theory and hands-on practice

starts: 07/11 10:30 AM

This introductory course is designed as an introduction to petrophysics and petrophysical workflows, which are illustrated with the Techlog log analysis software.

• Borehole image analyses – fractures and facies
• Permeability prediction
• Pressure measurements, fluid gradients and contacts
• Saturation height relations
• Electrofacies and facies analyses
• Rock typing and petrofacies
• Integration with seismic – depth conversion, fluid substitution
