Training

In addition to introductory training in various aspects of practical Petrophysics, we offer the following two well-known courses:


Carbonate Petrophysics:

Overview:
The focus of this course is the characterisation of carbonate reservoirs by integrating the information and data available at different scales and from a range of disciplines. The specifics of such formations are examined, and practical solutions to address them reviewed and demonstrated. Exercises are used to reinforce the material.  Upon completion, participants should be ready to perform detailed interpretations that honour all the available geological and Petrophysical data.

Designed for:
Petrophysicists, geologists, geophysicists and geotechnical personnel who require an understanding of the complexities of carbonate reservoirs characterisation, and how to reduce uncertainties through an integrated approach. A prior experience of carbonate reservoirs is not required.

Learning objectives:
The main objectives of this course are:
• Understand and recognise the main differences between the characterisation of carbonates and sandstones,
• design effective data acquisition programs in a pluri-disciplinary environment,
• select and apply appropriate techniques to evaluate carbonate formations.

Course history:
This is the well-known course on Carbonate Petrophysics, designed by R. E. (Gene) Ballay and delivered by him until his recent retirement. This course is now delivered by Martin Storey under an exclusive license agreement with Gene Ballay. It has been adapted to accommodate the instructor’s style and to include some recent developments in the industry, but the scope and intents of the course are otherwise the same.
This is a Petrophysics course, not a software course nor a course promoting any particular tool, school or company. No specialised software will be used during the course.

Format:
Combination of class lectures and short exercises.
Participation through discussions and questions is encouraged, for better learning outcomes.
Open or in-house. 
Duration: 3, 4 or 5 days for the main course, or 2 x 4 for a slower-paced delivery (Fundamentals & Advanced)

Please contact us to discuss your specific requirements.


Log Data Acquisition and Quality Control:

Overview:
This course teaches you to recognize the sources of errors in well measurements, to plan the acquisition of fit-for-purpose data, and to manage the uncertainties associated with non-quality data. The course focus is on log data, but the concepts and methods can be applied to the acquisition and quality control of all well data.
This is a practical course, intended to familiarize the participants with the challenges of working with data that are often of variable quality, of different vintages, acquired by different data acquisition companies, using different conveyance modes (LWD, wireline, drillpipe, coiled tubing, etc), in increasingly challenging well environments – deviated wells, multilaterals, unusual mud systems, etc.
A main outcome of this course is that you will be a more aware and confident generator or user of well data, and hence a more effective and dependable professional.

Designed for:
All professionals who use log and other well data, and who would benefit from an improved understanding of the data acquisition processes at the wellsite and the data exploitation in the office. These include geologists, geophysicists, petrophysicists, reservoir engineers, geotechnical and support personnel, as well as data acquisition engineers.

Learning objectives:
The main objectives of this course are to understand and become familiar with:
• the terminology and the methods to understand and quantify errors
• the conditions and the sequence of data acquisition in the field
• the differences between data types in relation to data integration
• the methods of quality control
• the importance of the human factor
• the value of documentation

Course history:
This is the well-known course designed by Philippe Theys, author of the textbook “Log Data Acquisition and Quality Control” . The course is delivered by Martin Storey under an exclusive license agreement with Philippe Theys. It has been adapted to accommodate the instructor’s style and to include some recent developments in the industry, but the scope and intents of the course are otherwise the same.

Format:
Combination of class lectures and short exercises.
Participation through discussions and questions is encouraged, for better learning outcomes.
Open or in-house. 
Duration: 3, 4 or 5 days.
