Petrophysical Properties: Core, Log & Test Data Integration for Reservoir ModelingRCM/PETRODATA

Who should attend?

  • This course provides a deep understanding of the 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.
Audience :
  • Petrophysicists, geologists, geophysicists and reservoir engineers.

Level : Proficiency
