Core Analysis and SCAL Workshop
Course Description
About the Course: Participants to this course are those who want to enrich their geological, geophysical, petrophysical and reservoir engineering knowledge and experience with some real rock data and knowing where this data is coming from and how they were interpreted in addition to the in-depth background on how to maximize the usage of such 3D real data in hand. All attendees will differentiate between good and bad data, how to retrieve what they need from core reports, link their work and interpretation to solid conclusive material especially for facies, zonation and petrophysical parameters. All attendees also will have a strong background on knowing what analysis, lab work, and even type of methods used to request once the core is ready as well as having a good quality control scheme on presented data by the coring company. One thing that is very important for both geologist and reservoir engineers is to have a reasonable justification and explanation to some odd reservoir behavior and ambiguities.
The Training Course Will Highlight ?

This training course will highlight:

  • Why we need a core and what is the maximum we can get from it
  • How to have a good core and accurate analysis
  • The application of core data and analysis onto reservoir rock evaluation
  • How core can help explaining odd reservoir behavior and ambiguities
  • All type of tools and lab analysis that we can have, what they provide per reservoir type
  • All core interpreted data linked to environment of deposition, modeling and volumetric
Training Objective

Course Goals:

The main goals are to enrich the participant’s knowledge with in-depth core data, understand the coring procedure and its importance, maximize the usage of core analysis, learn the benefit of core interpreted data to geologists and engineers, create the best justification several reservoir behavior ambiguities and link all results in hand to future facies/zonation and modeling.

By the end of this training course, participants will hopefully learn to:

  • Know the vital role of coring
  • Understand the benefits of core analysis
  • Maximize the usage of core data
  • Understand and justify possible reservoir behavior ambiguities
  • Apply interpreted core data to environment and facies

Target Audience

This training course suits all exploration and development staff and reservoir engineers, but it is mainly designed to for:

  • Petrophysicists
  • Geologists and Modeler
