Well logs are detailed record of the geologic formations by a borehole. These are comprehensive and important data gathered in any phase of a well’s history to identify petrophysical properties which in turn defines the economic value of a reservoir. The techniques in analysis and interpretation of well logs are therefore essential in identification of hydrocarbon recovery. This is a course designed for geologists, geophysicists, petroleum engineers and other industry professionals who are interested to learn some advanced log interpretation techniques. The course will teach the techniques and procedures to interpret open and cased hole logs including advanced technologies. At the end of the training the participant will be able to perform a full interpretation and will know the uses and applications of several advanced open hole and cased hole logs.



By the end of this training course, participants will be able to:

  • Drive a consistent and effective Petrophysics inputs to improve oil recovery
  • Understand rock properties and pore geometry
  • Capitalize on integration reservoir and petrophysical data to maximize economic recovery of hydrocarbons
  • Attain the knowledge and practical use of total and effective porosity calculation
  • Determine and understand new techniques and tools in well logging including imaging logging tools
  • Acquire knowledge on permeability and rock quality interpretation Learn and practice integration of core analysis and open-hole logs Knowledge on hydrocarbon typing and saturation estimation
