Reservoir Eng 3: Open Hole Logging




This course is designed to provide trainees with the Fundamental petrophysical concepts and equations as well as the most important classical well logging methods; the theory of operation and advantages of each logging tool is discussed in details. In addition, it covers the basics concepts of all the petro-physical calculations. By the end of this course, trainees are expected to be able to evaluate clean formation reservoirs electrical log and calculate Rw, Sw, geothermal gradient, and calculation and estimation of oil and gas reserves.
