E-170 - Quantitative Well Log Interpretation

  • Geoscientists and technicians having an experience in qualitative log interpretation and willing to perform quantitative reservoir evaluation. Participants should know the principles and applications of common wireline logging tools and must be used to perform a quicklook (lithology, porosity, Rw, Sw)
  • Geoscientists and technicians with some experience in qualitative log interpretation
Learning Objectives
  • To perform sound quality-control and environmental correction of logs, determine Rt, Rxo, Di
  • To evaluate shale content of reservoirs, apply shale and hydrocarbon corrections
  • To perform quantitative log interpretation in case of water and oil based mud, determine porosity, permeability, net sand, net reservoir and net pay characteristics
  • Course requires a good grasp of principles and applications of common wireline logging tools
Ways and means
  • Hand computations completed by sessions with a petrophysical software
