Carbonate Petrophysics


Engineers in exploration and production departments. geologists, seismologists, andpetroleum, petrophysical, reservoir and drilling engineers.


- Overview of Carbonates: depositional processes; controls on primary and secondary pore systems
- Carbonate Sequence Stratigraphy: controls on the distribution of facies and geological controls on reservoir quality
- Rock Properties and Fluid-Rock-Interactions: porosity, permeability, saturation, wettability, capillary pressure
- Conventional and Special Core Analysis: laboratory measurement techniques; limitations and uncertainites in each analytical technique
- Borehole Environment: drilling and logging process
- Conventional Logging Tool Theory
- Data Preparation and Quality Control: issues relating to borehole quality; log quality issues; missing data; depth matching
- Log Interpretation Process : Review theory and application of conventional openhole logs
- Carbonate Log Exercise
- Advanced Logging Tools: Theory of advanced downhole tools e.g. NMR log, Borehole Images and DSI
- Fractures and Vugs: Identifying and describing these features in the subsurface
- Integration and Flow Unit Integration: Flow unit model
