Basic Well Log Analysis

Course Details

This is a course designed for geologists, geophysicists, petroleum engineers and other industry professionals who are interested to learn some basic log interpretation techniques. The course will teach the basic Petrophysical principles as well as techniques and procedures to interpret electric logs. At the end of the seminar the participant will be able to perform a quick interpretation in open hole for clean and shaley formations.

Once you have completed this course we recommend you enroll in either the Log Quality Control Seminar or the Advanced Log Analysis course.

Who Should Attend

Geologists, Geophysicists, Petrophysicists, Petroleum Engineers Petroleum Technicians and other professionals who are interested on a basic Petrophysical interpretation knowledge.
