Advanced Petrophysics for Thin Bedded Reservoirs

Thin Bedding 2
12th - 14th April 2019 | Dubai, UAE
  • 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

This program is developed for those who are working on interpreting log data from low resistivity, thin bedded sequences. This program is also for those who will benefi t from understanding the analysis of petrophysical data during exploration and development stage.

  • Petrophysicists
  • Log Analysts
  • Exploration Geoscientists
  • Development Geoscientists
  • Subsurface Managers

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.

All information regarding the event will be listed on our event brochures. It contains all the necessary information such as the Investment Fee, Full Course Agenda, Top Learning Objectives, Trainer’s Profile, and more. You may request for an event brochure by:

a. Signing up on the Request for Brochure form located at the Event Page

b. Leaving a message to Sally via Salvo’s Support Message Box.

c. Sending an e-mail to

You will be required to provide details such as your Name, Organisation, Corporate E-mail Address, Contact Number, and Country of Origin.

The exact hotel location will be made known to all delegates privately approximately 1 month prior to the commencement date. We do have preferential corporate rates at the event hotels. Interested parties may inquire at or request for the event brochure. Delegates who have confirmed their participation with us will be contacted by our team as soon as a venue is finalised. Usually, we hold all our events in 5 star hotels based in the city centre.

Salvo typically provides a 10% discount from the original investment fee per delegate should a company send 3 or more delegates to attend the course. Specific discounts may differ for respective programs so please email for further confirmation on the exact discount.

Aside from the group discount mentioned above, Salvo offers a special Early Bird Discount once a new event is released. However, delegates must register as soon as possible since the special rate will only be available for a limited time.

The Investment Fee will cover all the course documents and materials that will be used during the training, as well as luncheons and coffee breaks during the training program. The Investment Fee does not cover the travel and accommodation expenses of the delegates, however, we can assist you by providing details on the estimated cost for both. The Investment Fee is also exclusive of tax. Taxes are to be borne by the delegate’s organisation.

Once you receive a copy of the event brochure, complete the registration form which is located on the last page and send it back to us. Upon receipt of the completed registration form with authorization, we will proceed to block the seat(s) on our system for your organization. Thereafter, the invoice will be sent out by our Finance team for processing of payment. 

Your payment can be made via Telegraphic Transfer or via Credit Cards through American ExpressMasterCardVisa or Diners. Bank charges and local withholding tax are to be borne by the registrant.

Full payment should be made within TEN (10) WORKING DAYS upon receipt of invoice.

Aside from the knowledge that our expert trainers are imparting, a Certificate of Completion will be issued to all delegates completing a minimum of 90% of the total hours of the course. Some of our events offer takeaways and free consultation after the course. It varies from programs to programs.

You will receive a pre-course questionnaire upon successful registration. Kindly state your specific concerns and issues on this questionnaire and send it back to us, as this will be consolidated and forwarded to the trainer during the formulation of the course agenda. Alternatively, you can also email us at regarding your concern so we can be in touch to ensure that your concerns is addressed asap.

The registration form carries at least a 50% cancellation liability 6 weeks prior to the commencement date of the event after a signed sales resignation contract has been received by Salvo. If we are notified less than 2 weeks prior to the commencement date of the event, full cancellation fees is applicable.

With that said, we do understand that last minute changes do occur in organizations due to last minute change in schedule, job requirements etc. As such, please contact us soonest at so we can assist in the best way forward for any changes.

Our events can be customised into in-house training programs for your organisation. Email us at to find out more information about in-house trainings.
