Who should attend?

Audience

    • Geoscientists and reservoir engineers involved in development of naturally fractured reservoirs.

Level

  • Proficiency
  • This course provides participants with an understanding of current borehole imaging tools and modern interpretation techniques.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • acquire the fundamental principles of Borehole Image Interpretation,
  • apply the methodology to approach the Borehole Image Interpretation,
  • perform BHI data quality control,
  • identify the fractures present in the images, by differentiating them from sedimentary and artificial features,
  • characterize the interpreted fractures in terms of their position, morphology, type, kinematics, orientation and dip angle, using WellCAD™.
