Open Hole Log Interpretation: Istanbul
The course will introduce the participants to the Basis of Petrophysics, and Open-hole Log Analysis and Formation Evaluation, which is one of the basic disciplines in petroleum exploration and production.
The course is designed for
Well Data Managers
To undergo a review of open-hole logging tools as well as the measurements made by the logging toolsTo undertake the transformation of the measured data into useful reservoir parameters such as porosity, permeability, water saturation and reserve estimations.To understand the link or relation between Petrophysics, Seismic interpretation, Seismic Reservoir Characterisation and Reservoir Modelling.
