Training Tight Gas Petrophysics
Petrophysics is central to the integration of a wide spectrum of related geosciences and engineering disciplines. However, students should also be familiar with at least two or more of the following disciplines:
Horizontal Well Drilling, Mud Logging, Wireline Logging & Log Analysis, Coring & Core Analysis, Petrophysics, Geophysics, Geochemistry, Formation Testing, Rock Mechanics, Hydraulic Fracturing and Petroleum Economics.
You will learn how to
- Plan petrophysical data gathering from unconventional reservoirs
- How to analyze mud log, core and log data so gathered
- How to assess TOC and other hydrocarbon indicators
- How to gauge gas-in-place and reserves in unconventional reservoirs
- How to detect formation anisotropy and plan well completions
- How to monitor fracture treatments
Who Should attend?
Geoscientists involved with the evaluation and exploitation of Unconventional Reservoirs including Tight Gas Sands, Shale Gas and Coal-bed Methane.
The course provides a combination of lectures, discussions, exercises and selected case studies covering:
- Overview of Unconventional Reservoirs
- Geochemistry of Unconventional Rocks
- Special Coring and Core Analysis Techniques
- Wireline and Mud Logging of Unconventional Reservoirs
- Assessment of formation organic content (TOC)
- Gas-in-Place and Reserve and Flow Potential Estimates
- Geomechanics and Fracturing
- Well Completion Techniques
