Petrophysics is central to the integration of a wide spectrum of related geoscience and engineering disciplines. However, students should also be familiar with at least two or more of the following topics: horizontal well drilling, mud logging, wireline logging & log analysis, coring & core analysis, petrophysics, geophysics, geochemistry, formation testing, rock mechanics, hydraulic fracturing and petroleum economics.
Geoscientists involved with the evaluation and exploitation of unconventional reservoirs including tight gas sands, shale gas and coal-bed methane.
Participants will learn how to:
◾Plan petrophysical data gathering from unconventional reservoirs
◾Analyze mud log, core and log data so gathered
◾Assess TOC and other hydrocarbon indicators
◾Gauge gas-in-place and reserves in unconventional reservoirs
◾Detect formation anisotropy and plan well completions
◾Monitor fracture treatments
◾Overview of unconventional reservoirs
◾Geochemistry of unconventional rocks
◾Special coring and core analysis techniques
◾Wireline and mud logging of unconventional
reservoirs ◾Assessment of formation organic content (TOC)
◾Gas-in-place and reserve and flow potential estimates
◾Geomechanics and fracturing
◾Well completion techniques
