Formation Testing (Azurite – FT)
- Strong emphasis on practical planning and acquisition considerations
- Data QAQC and interpretation working with real data in Azurite
- Immediate return on investment with attendees able to perform commercial analysis upon completion of the course
The KAPPA Formation Testing (Azurite – FT) course has been designed
to teach the practical aspects of job design, data acquisition, QAQC
and analysis of Formation Tests.
Hands-on field examples are used to illustrate the process and workflow.
By the end of the course the attendee should be capable of pressure
gradient analysis to identify fluids, fluid contacts, and barrier
identification, to use Azurite to obtain field pressure and mobility from
a formation tester, conduct related transient analysis, identify, quantify
and mitigate sources of pressure and depth errors, understand the importance
of real-time data monitoring and petrophysical integration and recommend
sampling best practices.
Introduction to FT
What is a formation test and why do we run them? Basic principles of FT
operation with an overview of tools and modules.
Pressure drawdown analysis (Vs time)
Station sequence; Pretests, Pstop
/ Pdd, draw down mobility,
QA/QC criteria, test quality.
Pressure gradient analysis (Vs depth)
Excess pressure, free water level vs the petrophysical contact and multiwell analysis.
Integrating FT mobility measurements into petrophysical analysis.
Pressure Transient Analysis (PTA)
PTA theory revision, specific FT diagnostic plots, single probe analysis,
multiprobe analysis (VIT) and anisotropy, Mini DST, Multilayer analysis
and test design.
Pressure uncertainty, depth uncertainty, supercharging; description,
prediction and detection.
Downhole sampling and downhole fluid analysis (overview of services), sampling
