|Well Log Interpretation - WLI|
|Structural and Stratigraphic Interpretation of Dipmeters and Borehole-Imaging Logs - SSI|
|Evaluating and Developing Shale Resources - SRE|
|Petrophysics of Unconventional Reservoirs - PUR|
Duration: 3 days
Instructor(s): Jeff Hamman, John Sneider, Carl Sondergeld
|Petrophysics is central to the integration of a wide spectrum of related geoscience and engineering disciplines. However, students should also be familiar with at least two or more of the following topics: horizontal well drilling, wireline logging and log analysis, coring and core analysis, petrophysics, geophysics, geochemistry, formation testing, rock mechanics, hydraulic fracturing, and petroleum economics.|
Geoscientists involved with the evaluation and exploitation of unconventional reservoirs including tight gas sands, shale gas, and coal-bed methane.
You Will Learn:
MR. JEFF HAMMAN consults on subsurface characterization and provides training and technical mentoring. He had 40 years of experience with Gulf, Chevron, Marathon, and BP before creating his own LLC. As a member of production teams, he provided characterization of most reservoir types across the major basins of the globe. A substantial portion of his career has been devoted to technology development and delivery in the areas of reservoir petrophysics, seismic reservoir characterization, and subsurface integration. Most of the last 15 years was devoted to leading and building teams and the extremely gratifying mentoring and development of people. He remains active in the SPE and SPWLA, has coauthored more than 30 papers and 2 patents, held professional registrations in petroleum engineering and geoscience, and received the SPE Gulf Coast Formation Evaluation Award. Jeff has a BS in Geology from LSU and an ME in Petroleum Engineering from Tulane University.
DR. JOHN S. SNEIDER is President of Sneider Exploration, Inc., an exploration/exploitation consulting service that conducts studies around the world, but with a focus in Latin America, China, North Africa and the United States. He is also involved with industry training with more than 18 years' experience in Venezuela, Chile, Colombia, Peru, Argentina, Mexico, the North Sea, Switzerland, Korea, China, the Gulf Coast, Alaska, and the Permian Basin. From 1994 to the present, he has been a partner in PetroTech Associates, providing exploration/exploitation with analysis and evaluation of reservoir, seal and flow barrier rock types. From 1989 to 1990 he was a consultant for Green Hill Petroleum, Inc., in East Texas, and previously was a geologist with Shell Oil, Inc., in South Texas. While working on his PhD in Geology and Geophysics at Rice University, he spent 18 months in the Elf Acquitaine Paris office working various sequence stratigraphy projects focusing in the North Sea. He received a BS and an MS in Geology from Texas A&M and a PhD in Geology and Geophysics from Rice University.
DR. CARL H. SONDERGELD is Professor and Curtis Mewbourne Chair, Mewbourne School of Petroleum and Geological Engineering at the University of Oklahoma. He has over 12 years in the field of education and over 19 years with Amoco as a Special Research Associate working in rock physics. He has developed course manuals, newsletters, web pages and two software packages: Rock Properties Database and Analysis System and Unified Rock Modeling Software. He has published over 75 papers on various subjects and he is principal or co-author on 14 patents. He received a Ph.D. in geophysics from Cornell University and both an M.A. and B.A. in geology from Queens College of the City of New York.
