Fundamentals of Formation Evaluation

Geology, Seismology & Petrophysics
Well Drilling & Completion Technology


This training course provides the participant with an understanding of the concepts of formation evaluation and well logging; an understanding of the physical principles of the tools used in logging; and an ability to characterize formations based on interpretation of well logs. More specifically, by the end of this PetroDeep training course, the participant will understand the properties of rocks and fluids that produce characteristic signals; be able to read and interpret a well log; be able to analyze the measurements and correction for environmental factors; and be able to interpret the log to discern porosity, water saturation, lithology, and hydrocarbon content. Core analysis studies required for determining saturation and rock properties such as porosity, permeability, relative permeability, wettability, capillary pressure and their application to reservoir studies will also be covered. This training course will feature: • Logging methods and interpretation techniques • Discussions on conditions around the wellbore effects on measurements of mud filtrate invasion. • The terminology of well logging, formation and fluid properties • The physical principles involved in geophysical well logging • Differentiation between gas, oil and water zones and shale estimation • The Archie Equations in clean formations and estimation of water saturation • Types of cross-plots, gas and shale effects • Effects of shaliness and modified equations • Core analysis and laboratory measurements of saturation and rock properties and their application to reservoir studies
