Main LWD sensors and measurements (directional, resistivity, nuclear, acoustic, pressure…).
Applications for directional drilling, geosteering, formation evaluation, predictive pressure.
Pressure measurement concepts.
Different technics for sampling with wireline and LWD tools.
Prevention actions to handle sampling operations.
Data collected with coring.
Conventional coring operation.
Cores bits and drilling strings for coring operations.
Advanced coring technics: turbo-coring, soft formations coring, gel coring.
Oriented coring system.
Storage and handling process for cores during surface recovery: cores cutting, preliminary well site analysis, storaging of cores.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
understand, assess and interpret measurements made while drilling,
learn about techniques and equipment used for coring during drilling operations,
understand how to prevent kicks and drilling problems with mud logging data analysis,
understand wireline and LWD technology with regard to log data analysis,
appreciate the geoscientists’ work in a quick-look log analysis at the rig site.
Ways & Means
Alternation between theoretical contributions and case studies, with a large part left to the participants' questions. Exercises in working groups.
Application to a real case (project) for the participants in the “Drilling & Completion Engineering” training course.
