Course Agenda

Day 1: Basics and Field Study Preparation

  • Study in perspective of the field context
  • Data integration requirements for the field study

Day 2: QA/ QC of Data

  • QA/ QC the available logs and core data
  • QA/ QC of data for coherency checks
  • Elements to consider during QA/ QC phase to perform the field study
  • Data normalization where required
  • Establish the input parameters required for the petrophysical model

Day 3: 3D Petrophysics

  • Develop coherent petrophysical interpretation model in key wells
  • Perform QC of the interpretation models developed for key wells
  • Apply the key wells model to the multiwells using the 3D petrophysics module
  • QC the interpretation coherency for all wells

Day 4: Mercury Injection Capillary Pressure

  • Mercury injection capillary pressure theory and applications
  • Relationship between the mercury injection capillary pressure with the buoyancy model
  • Thomeer Modelling - MICP

Day 5: Buoyancy Model

  • Buoyancy model theory
  • Applications of buoyancy model in the petrophysical analysis and field study
  • How does it related to rocks, pores and fluids
  • Demonstration and exercise will be conducted on applying the buoyancy model on some wells
