Wireline Log Interpretation


The course has been designed to enable the explorationist, development and production geologist to evaluate and integrate wireline log data.


This course provides a basic understanding in the following elements:
- The logging environment, introduction to the borehole
- Conventional wireline logs: Caliper, Tension, Gamma ray, Spectral Gamma ray, Spontaneous potential, Resistivity, Density, Neutron porosity, PEF, Sonic
- Data QA and depth matching
- Interpretation of lithologies from conventional logs
- Quick look interpretation of porosity and hydrocarbons
- Some sedimentological indications from wireline log patterns
- Zoning a section for reservoir engineering purposes
- Interwell correlation using logs and other data, including advanced techniques
- The dipmeter log
- Borehole imaging logs (FMI, ATS) etc.

Learning Objectives

- Understand tool theory, uses and limitations
- Interpret lithologies and reservoir characteristics
- Identify depositional sequences and correlate wells
- Determine porosity, saturation and reservoir fluid type
- Employ quicklook methods of formation evaluation
