Road to be a Petrophysicist

Geodwipa launches the Geodwipa Graduate Training Series program which contains series of courses related to the petroleum geology which are designed for students, fresh graduate and entry level professionals. The purpose of this program is to equip them with knowledge and best practices that they have not yet gotten from the university, but from the experience of the trainers who are always directly involved in the oil and gas industry. Thus if they later enter to the industry, they will be better prepared with the provision of additional knowledge they have gained during this program. All our trainers are experienced professionals with more than 15 years of experience in the oil and gas industry.

One of the Course on the Graduate Training Series program is "Road to be a Petrophysicist". This training provides an overview and provision of how to become a Petrophysicist, understanding of Petrophysics, the logging process, understanding of the principle of basic log measurement, the use of log analysis with some real world examples and exercises.
