|Integration of Rocks, Log and Test Data - ILC|
|Shaly Sand Petrophysics - APS|
|Wireline Formation Testing and Interpretation - WFT|
|Capillarity in Rocks - CIR|
Discipline: Reservoir Engineering
Duration: 3 days
Instructor(s): David Murphy
This course covers conventional reservoirs.
The course provides detailed knowledge of how capillarity affects hydrocarbon distribution in a reservoir rock, and how the magnitude of capillary forces can be used to deduce valuable information about rock properties including pore throat sizes, pore network geometry, porosity, and permeability. Several in-class exercises reinforce the course learning and provide students with experience using capillary pressure data for reservoir characterization. Exercises will be worked on the computer using spreadsheet software.
For the October virtual session, course hours will be 08:00-12:00 Western Australia time (GMT +8:00) on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday over the two week class period.
For the November virtual session, course hours will be 08:00-12:00 Central US time (GMT -5:00), Monday-Wednesday each week.
"I thought this class was perfect! The content was excellent, but the instructor was spectacular. Great engagement, knowledge, personality." - Petrophysicist, United States
"It was fun and engaging as well as informative." - Petrophysicist, United States
"I can't say enough great things about [instructor]. Great course. One of the best instructors ever." - Foundation Geologist
Geoscientists, petrophysicists, reservoir engineers, and research and development staff who want to gain fundamental and intermediate insight into the capillary properties and hydrocarbon distribution in reservoir rocks.
You Will Learn:
MR. DAVID PATRICK MURPHY retired from Shell Exploration and Production after almost 35 years of engineering and operational experience, with emphasis on petrophysical engineering and technical learning. For over 16 years he was formation evaluation lecturer in the University of Houston Petroleum Engineering Graduate Program. He received the Outstanding Lecturer award from the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering twice. He is widely published including multiple articles in World Oil and contributions to Carbonate Reservoir Characterization: A Geological-Engineering Analysis, Part II (Elsevier 1996). He has been a judge for Hart's E&P annual Meritorious Engineering Awards and an industry advisor for Oilfield Review. He is a member of the Society of Petrophysicists and Well Log Analysts (SPWLA) and the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE). He has taught numerous SPWLA short courses. SPE committee memberships have included Education and Professionalism Committee and Measurement While Drilling Reprint Editorial Committee. Murphy is a Licensed Professional Engineer in Petroleum Engineering. He received a BS degree in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Oklahoma.
