E-228 - Petrophysical Properties: Core, Log & Test Data Integration for Reservoir Modeling

  • Petrophysicists, geologists, geophysicists and reservoir engineers.
  • This course provides a deepen understanding of methods used to measure reservoir petrophysical properties from cores, logs and well tests data and, ultimately, correlate and integrate results for reservoir characterization and modeling.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • deduce reservoir properties from log interpretation and compare results to core measurements,
  • define rock-types, determine electro-facies and derive K-Phi relationship,
  • integrate cores, logs and well tests data for reservoir modeling.
  • No prerequisites for this course.
Ways and means
  • Real case study with cores, logs and well tests data.
