E-252 - Cased-Hole & Production Logging

  • Production engineers and supervisors, drilling and workover engineers and supervisors, wellsite geologists and witnesses.
  • This course provides a comprehensive knowledge of cased-hole logging techniques and production log interpretation, along with the industry’s best practices and procedures.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • acquire an insight into well cementation control, corrosion,
  • determine the characteristics of formations behind the casing and reservoir saturation,
  • carry out a quick interpretation of production logs.
  • No prerequisites for this course.
Ways and means
  • Short lectures and videos completed with practical exercises and case studies.

Cement evaluation 1 day
  • Acoustic measurements (CBL - VDL).
  • Ultrasonic measurements (USIT - CASTV).
  • Other logs (temperature, isolation scanner).
  • Case studies, log examples.
Corrosion evaluation 1 day
  • Origins of the corrosion process in the wells.
  • Corrosion evaluation.
  • Multi-finger Caliper.
