The aim of this course is to take students to the frontier of petrophysics as currently practised and to allow them to develop specialisms that will enhance their future careers. By the end of this course students will understand: the limits of what is currently achievable using petrophysical interpretation; and the role of specialist petrophysics in either seismic interpretation, drilling, production technology, or fracture detection. They should also have an understanding of possible future trends in petrophysics and formation evaluation.
|Session||First Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
By the end of this course, students will have been exposed to two of the following topics:
- Image log analysis
- Advanced production log interpretation methods
- Cement and casing evaluation
- Advanced seismic methods
- Geomechanics - Borehole acoustics
- Restivity modelling and geosteering.
This course is based on Senergy modules S1-S7. Students are expected to choose two of these modules.
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
Continuous assessment (100%).
