Traditionally PL has been seen as a ‘black art’ called
in when all else fails. This course is designed to dispel
that myth and gives an introduction to the reservoir
engineering aspects of the technique as a part of the
surveillance suite. It introduces the link between the
reservoir engineer’s objectives, job planning, tool
selection, job execution and the final interpretation.
Whilst the objective is not to teach the use of the
software attendees get to work with real data, handson,
to appreciate the issues faced in planning, running
and interpreting the results of a successful PL job.
Reservoir engineering principles, reservoir monitoring: a review of
the means and methods.
Production Logging objectives, tools and sensors, types of PL:
single and multi phase, deviated and horizontal memory PL,
temperature, sensing and modeling, accuracies and sensitivities:
PVT, interpretation models, integration into the reservoir model,
examples and interpretations. A hands-on session looking at some
real data and examples is included.
This is NOT a course on production log interpretation.
