Intermediate Log Seminar

Course Overview:

This is a course of approximately 24 hours of classroom training to give the student a further understanding of the collection of log data, the basic physics of the measurements and the interpretation of the data. It is intended as a refresher of the Basic course and expands on the principles introduced there. The course is intended for those that has some experience with log interpretation and want a refresher or to expand their knowledge of basic log evaluation. Upon completion of the course the student should be more proficient at critiquing the quality of the measurements, calculating porosity and water saturation and estimating lithologies and permeabilities. Real examples are used in the provided work sessions to give the student practice in working with logs. Advanced logging tools and complimentary well services will be covered in more detail than in the Basic course. The Basic course is not a prerequisite for this course. It is suggested that if you have taken the Basic course, you wait at least six months before taking the Intermediate course.

Students are expected to bring a scientific calculator or laptop computer (charging facilities may be limited). The complete set of course materials is provided. This course also includes the case hIstory data from Bill Smith's study of many Western Canadian Basin reservoirs
