Petroleum Geosciences > Integration of Rocks, Logs and Test Data - Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)

About this Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) 

This intermediate-level Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) will focus on problem-solving using real-world data in a series of Excel workbooks. The data will be used to determine lithology, porosity, permeability and saturations, using a variety of different analytical and modelling methods. Emphasis will be placed on understanding the importance of calibration, integration and validation of the results of each method.

It is important to become familiar with all the different analytical approaches available (cores, logs, tests, seismic) and consider all the possibilities, enabling the interpreter to make a sound judgement as to the accuracy and validity of the analytical results they achieve.

The technical knowledge required to solve the problems will be provided through a series of short thematic presentations and discussions, which will support the workbook-based exercises.

One critical element of the formation evaluation and reservoir characterisation process is to be able to tie the rock properties to depositional models and be able to conceptualise the geometry and connectivity of flow units. It is for this reason that we have included the Virtual Reality field work, allowing participants to make relevant field observations of an actual high-resolution outcrop, understand processes and draw conclusions on likely environment of deposition and reservoir properties.

The VILT will be delivered online in 10 sessions consisting 3.5 hours per day (GMT+8 Malaysia Time), with 2 breaks of 10 minutes per day.

  • Understand the geological controls on rock properties and how to relate them to geological processes and models.
  • Become familiar with the laboratory methods of measurement of rock properties in core and their limitations and uncertainties.
  • Be able to determine lithology, porosity, permeability and water saturation from integrated conventional logs and core analysis.
  • Understand how flow properties can be characterised using various petrophysical rock typing methods and how these rock types can be compared with production and test data.
  • Become familiar with the potential of advanced logging and seismic inversion techniques that enable us to extend our reservoir characterisation between wells.

Early career geologists, geophysicists, petrophysicists and reservoir engineers who need to better understand how rocks, logs, test data and seismic analysis should be better integrated, and how their models should be tied to the geological properties of the rocks.

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.

Excellent course. The interactive group work enabled us to better visualise the subject matters.

Geologist, PetroleumBRUNEI

Very good course that geoscientist should have it during their early career.

Geologist, JX Nippon

Provide the participants with holistic view in conducting evaluation from Basin to Prospect to development not only on E & G part but also interdisciplinary approach.

Staff Geoscientist, PETRONAS

Very good course – integration.
