Petrophysics, Quick Look and Log Quality Control

Petrophysics, Quick Look and Log Quality Control

This course will be suitable for all geoscientists and engineers who will benefit greatly from a strong foundation in petrophysics, logging tool physics and log interpretations. This course will also be particularly useful to all new hires who will be working in upstream domains.
