Advanced Petrophysics for Thin Bedded Reservoirs

Thin bedded reservoirs are increasingly common exploration targets. However, evaluating such formations is diffi cult due to challenging and sometimes misleading data. This program will cover all aspects of petrophysical analysis in thinly bedded reservoirs and will train attendees to select the best interpretation techniques based on the data available and the known characteristics of the formation.
Course Design Tackles Approaches for Various Types of Thinly Bedded Reservoirs
This course focuses on different techniques in tackling various types of thinly bedded reservoirs, including laminated sand shale sequences, thin layers of different types of clean sands and thin beds in carbonates.

Top Learning Objectives

  • To provide participants with a sound understanding of the various evaluation techniques to enable them to select the appropriate methods for their environment
  • Understand principles, quality, editing and response characteristics of the major open hole logging devices
  • Understand the differences and application of the effective and total porosity systems using the Archie, Simandoux, Indonesian, Waxman Smits, Dual Water and Juhasz saturation equations
  • Practice the various crossplot methods that can be applied to determine clay volume, lithology and assist in hydrocarbon differentiation Understand capillary pressure curves and saturation height functions
  • Learn how probabilistic interpretation methods can be applied in complex formations
  • Use various statistical techniques and logging tool responses to estimate permeability
  • Apply uncertainty analysis and appropriate cut-off methods for volumetric calculations
  • Be aware of the logging methods that can be applied in the cased hole environment
  • Understand the response relationships between petrophysical measurements and seismic interpretation
  • Be introduced to the techniques that can be applied in unconventional resources
