Introduction to Petrophysics

Petrophysics as one of important discipline in oil industry should be placed proportionally together with the other disciplines (Geology, Geophysics, Reservoir Engineering, etc). One of the main purpose of drilling the well in the particular area is to gain the rock information as much as we can. These well information are mainly gained by the logging tools that possibly run by wireline or LWD (Logging While Drilling) technologies.

Introduction to Petrophysics Training is the first step into the adventure of Petrophysic. It will be started with the understanding of Petrophysics, the logging process, what is a log? (the understanding of the principle of basic log measurement), the use of log analysis and some real world examples and exercises. Also, some basic of geological understanding will be included in this course.
