Who Should Attend
The course is designed to be of benefit to geologists, engineers and technical support people who are involved in oil and gas exploration and production in carbonate reservoirs. As the title states, this is a quick guide that concentrates on methods used to analyze carbonate reservoirs. It is an advanced course and assumes the course participants are already well informed about basic well logging principles.
At the conclusion of the course, participants should be able to do the following:
Scan a well log to determine zones that potentially could be hydrocarbon productive.
Examine pre-processed and calculated well log data and be able to answer the following questions.
What is the carbonate pore type or types?
Is the reservoir water-wet or oil-wet?
Is the reservoir hydrocarbon productive?
If hydrocarbon productive will the production be oil or gas? Do you expect a water-cut?
Use a cross plot method to help verify the answers to the four questions.
Once the above four questions are answered the participants should be able to determine a strategy to improve the calculations of the reservoir’s water and hydrocarbon saturations.
