This is not done in a class setting, but more of a small group or individual mentoring for Geographix users to enhance their use of the standard Prizm UDE models to build a customized analysis model for your company’s specific requirements.

This workshop covers most all the topics in evaluating unconventional reservoirs and optimizing the stimulation treatment and completion practices to maximize production. The workshop uses examples from your specific areas and could be taught in shorter time segments from 1-4 days. This workshop is intended for a multi-disciplinary work group environment.

  • Overview of unconventional reservoirs workflow process
  • Characteristics of the unconventional resources
  • Log response for the unconventional resources
  • Data Needed for Stimulation Design of the unconventional resources
  • Mechanical Rock Properties Determined from log data of the unconventional resources
  • Geomechanics and Stress State Analysis of the unconventional resources
  • Stimulation Treatment Optimization of the unconventional resources
  • Coal Resource Evaluation
  • Shale Resources Evaluation
  • Best Practices for Unconventional Reservoir Completionsc

This workshop could be tailored from a 1 hour lunch-n-learn format for the logs common in our industry to a 1-2 day more comprehensive course including both open hole and cased hole measurements. A typical course outline is provided below.

  • Introduction and historical overview of the wireline logging industry
  • Goals of formation analysis using wireline or LWD measurements
  • Wireline Measurements commonly used to evaluate the subsurface
    • Depth measurement
    • Correlation Logs – Gamma Ray, SP, Collar Locator
    • Resistivity Logs – Induction, Laterolog, Array
    • Porosity Logs – Neutron, Density, Acoustic, Dielectric, Magnetic Resonance
    • Formation Imaging – Acoustic, Micro-Electric
    • Mechanical rock Properties
    • Cased Hole Evaluation Tools – Cement Sheath Evaluation, Porosity measurements, Synthetic Open Hole log estimation
  • Fundamentals of Formation Analysis Techniques
  • What do we do with all this information

Workshops can be tailored to suit your company’s specific needs using your log data. All of these workshops will have examples to work through to reinforce the main points of the lectures. These workshops are taught from a more hands on practical – how to use the data standpoint. Some theory and historical perspective is also included.
