Shaly Sand Petrophysics

Audience

Engineers in exploration and production departments. Geologists, seismologists and petroleum, petrophysical, reservoir and drilling engineers.

Content

The provisional schedule for the shaly sands course is outlined below. The schedule can be tailored to the client’s specific requirements:

  • Rock Properties: overview of depositional systems
  • Fluid -Rock-Interactions: porosity, permeability, saturation, wettability, capillary pressure
  • Conventional and Special Core Analysis: laboratory techniques to measure physical properties in core
  • Drilling and Logging Process: review drilling and logging process
  • Conventional Logging Tools: logging tools theory
  • Advanced Logging Tools: advanced downhole tools e.g. NMR log and Borehole Images 

The second part of the programme will focus on an Excel-based practical exercise, which will enable attendees to work through a full petrophysical evaluation of a shaly sand sequence, and in doing so, compare and contrast a variety of methods for Vsh, porosity and saturations in shaly sands.

  • Full Interpretation Workflow
  • Data Preparation and Quality Control
  • Shale Volume Analysis
  • Porosity Analysis
  • Water Saturation Analysis
  • Saturation Height
  • Permeability
  • Recovery Factors
  • Reservoir Summation
