3-day Interactive Learning Course in Brisbane, QLD, Australia

Through this course you will learn to understand and recognize the sources of errors in well measurements, to plan the acquisition of fit-for-purpose data, to ascertain the adequacy of available data to your specific requirements, and to manage the uncertainties associated with non-quality data.    

This is a practical course, intended to familiarize you with the challenges of working with real-world data that are often of variable quality, of different vintages, acquired by different data acquisition companies, using different conveyance modes (LWD, wireline, drillpipe, coiled tubing, etc), in increasingly challenging well environments – deviated wells, multilaterals, unusual mud systems, etc, in a fast-evolving acquisition context.

The main objectives of this course are to understand and become familiar with:

  • ► the conditions and the sequence of data acquisition in the fieldLog Data Acquisition and Quality Control, by Philippe Theys (2nd Ed, Technip Ed)
  • ►  the main logging tools and their relevant characteristics
  • ► the terminology and the methods to understand and quantify errors
  • ► the different log data formats, including DLIS and LAS
  • ► the three types of log quality control 
  • ► the mitigation of data quality risk when planning acquisition operations 
  • ► the evolution of log data acquisition and its quality assurance in a fast-changing industry

A main outcome of this course is that you will be a more aware and confident generator and user of well data, and hence a more effective and dependable professional in your organisation and in the industry.

Who should attend?

Professionals of any seniority level who use log and other well data, and who would benefit from an improved understanding of the data acquisition processes at the wellsite and the data exploitation in the office.   These include:
