No Date Location Register
1 09 - 11 Oct 2019 Yogyakarta Register

OVERVIEW

This course is designed to provide deep understanding of core analysis and well logging for better reservoir characterization. Accurate measurements of routine and special (RCAL&SCAL) rock properties using core analysis and well logging reveal good evidence of hydrocarbon presence, reservoir storage capacity and flow capability. Coring and well logging offer the most tangible and direct means of determining critical reservoir parameters for making important and critical decisions about reservoir management and/or development plus enhanced oil recovery projects.

This course covers Routine Core Analysis (RCAL), Special Core Analysis (SCAL) and different well logging techniques. It covers coring objectives, coring methods, definitions and measurements of porosity, permeability, fluid saturation, capillary pressure, wettability, and others of advanced Special Core analysis (SCAL) tools such as; SEM, XRF, ICP-AEX, and EDS tools. The course also presents different well logging methods (shale, resistivity, and porosity logs) of clean and shally reservoir rocks.
