Applied Core Analysis

Applied Core Analysis

1.How to apply and use the results from routice core analysis (RCA or CCA) and Special Core Analysis (SCAL) for static and dynamic model building.
2.The fundamentals of core-log integration (Lithology, mineralogy, porosity and saturation).
3.Practical applications of capillary pressure (FWL, fluid-contacts, fluid distribution, pore geometry, drainage and imbibition processes).
4.Using high pressure mercury injection capillary pressure to determine pore geometry and the foundation of petrophysicalrock typing.
5.Using pore geometry to determine core based petrophysical rock types and creating core-log saturation height models.
6.Electrical Properties (Archie Parameters) using Core
7.Introducing Modified Lorenz and Multi-Component Modified Lorenz Plots as key petrophysical reservoir characterization tools.

The intended audience of this course includes geologists, geophysicists, reservoir engineers, production engineers, and petrophysicists.
