About this Training Course 

This advanced 5 full-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 participants 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.

By attending this course, the participants will be able to:

  • Discriminate gas / oil / water zones, evaluate water saturation, and monitor fluid contacts through the casing using sigma, C/0, and other cased hole logs.
  • Identify annular cement contacting the casing and estimate the likelihood of fluid channeling using Bond Index (CBL) and cement mapping (Pulse Echo) techniques.
  • Use numerous mechanical, electromagnetic, and other logging techniques to detect pipe damage, such as holes and pits caused by corrosion, erosion, collapsed pipe, and the like.
  • Pinpoint active perforations to assess perforating program effectiveness.
  • Determine zonal contributions, especially water entries, using PLT (Production Logging Tools – Spinner for fluid entry flow rate, Fluid Identification log for entry phase, and Temp log for fluid ID confirmation). Participants will also learn that special tools are required for deviated and horizontal wells.
  • Learn the fundamentals of Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) and Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) fiber optic logging.

This course will be useful and applicable for professionals who are involved in well surveillance, maximizing recovery, identifying production problems, or planning workover operations such as senior and experienced reservoir and production engineers and geologists, petrophysicists, and log analysts.

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.

Your expert course leader is an internationally recognized “Guru” in cased hole logging with more than 30 years of oil industry experience in well logging, related research, and training. He has 10 years’ experience in design, development, and testing of new cased hole equipment at Schlumberger. Clients included Amoco, BP, Chevron, Conoco Phillips, Mobil, AGIP/ENI, Anadarko, Oxy, ONGC, ESSO Australia, Schlumberger, Baker Hughes (Atlas), Halliburton, Weatherford, and many others.

To further optimise your learning experience from our courses, we also offer individualized “One to One” coaching support for 2 hours post training. We can help improve your competence in your chosen area of interest, based on your learning needs and available hours. This is a great opportunity to improve your capability and confidence in a particular area of expertise. It will be delivered over a secure video conference call by one of our senior trainers. They will work with you to create a tailor-made coaching program that will help you achieve your goals faster.
