About this Training Course 

This advanced 5-day course is designed to provide clarity on cased hole log interpretation. It will also equip participants to locate water, oil, and gas entries from flow meter/fluid ID and temperature surveys and detect water movement inside/outside of pipe using oxygen activation.

This course will allow you to understand heavy phase “fallback” in flows and select tools that minimise its effect as well as identify the problems of highly deviated/horizontal wells, how to log them, and what tools to use (coil tubing, tractoring, and the POLARIS, FSI, and MAPS tool strings)

Participants are required to have undergone prior basic training on this subject or have had extensive work experience in related topics discussed above.

This 5-day training course will be useful and applicable for professionals who involved in well surveillance, maximizing recovery, identifying production problems, or planning workover operations, also

• Geologists,
• Log analysts
• Petrophysicists
• Experienced Reservoir And Production Engineers

UNIQUE course features:

*The following agenda is based on three morning and three afternoon sessions daily, each session approximately one to 1-1/4 hours in length. These sessions are labelled M1, M2, M3, and A1, A2, and A3 respectively.
*Note that class problems (PROBLEMS), movies (MOVIES), and guest lecturers (GUEST) have been highlighted.
*Numerous log examples for class discussion are also presented throughout the course.
