This is a hands-on course that will focus on why pore geometry must be the focal point for carbonate petrophysical analysis. Participants will work with petrographic information, mineralogy data, routine core analysis, capillary pressure, electrical rock properties, NMR, and open hole logs. The importance of Core-Log integration and cross calibration will be shown, as well as the reduction of uncertainty in computed reservoirs properties.
During this five day course, participants will learn about why the petrophysical property analysis is often the key to building a static reservoir description. However, in carbonates, a model that is not cross calibrated from core to logs to seismic, it may result in a large statistical uncertainty. They will also learn about carbonate pore geometry, carbonate systems, total and effective porosity, lithology, and mineralogy. A portion of this course will also focus on core-log calibration, quicklook log analysis, applied capillary pressure, and applied flow units.
