About the Course
The course is aimed at geoscientists, petroleum engineers and natural scientists with a basic understanding of sedimentology. Participants will learn the basics of the different logging methods and the mainly geological interpretation of the logs in terms of lithology, porosity, depositional environment and fluid content (water, hydrocarbons). The different topics will be accompanied by exercises, focused on geologic applications. A hand-out consisting of the PowerPoint presentations will be provided to the participants.
- Introduction: some literature, basics of drilling; rock properties, porosity, permeability.
- Gamma Ray tools: measuring principles, type of tools, shale content, facies interpretation.
- Porosity tools: measuring principles of Sonic log, Density log, Litho-Density log, Neutron log; porosity and lithology evaluation, log crossplots and corrections of porosity values.
- SP tool: measuring principles, shale content estimation, porosity indication and other applications.
- Basics of Resistivity tools: measuring principles of electrode and induction tools, microresistivity, interpretation methods regarding fluid content and facies.
- Borehole Imaging: measuring principles of dipmeter, electrical imaging tools, acoustic borehole images, data processing and interpretation.
