|26 Jul, 2021 to 6 Aug, 2021|
Duration: 5 days
Instructor(s): John (Jack) Thomas
More than three-quarters of current additions to the world's reserves come from better management of existing reserves. Core-based measurements offer the most tangible and direct means of determining critical reservoir parameters. Core analysis can play a vital role in field equity or unitization and is often considered to be the ground truth to which other measurements are compared (e.g., wireline logging). Using a multidisciplinary approach, participants are taken through the steps necessary to obtain reliable core analysis data and solve formation evaluation problems. Throughout the course, participants are given hands-on problems and practical laboratory and field examples, which reinforce the instruction. *Laboratory visit with core analysis measurement demos (where feasible).
For the virtual session, course hours will be 08:00-12:00 Central US time (GMT-5:00), Monday through Friday over two weeks.

You Will Learn:
DR. JOHN B. (JACK) THOMAS has more than 45 years of diverse work experiences in which he has conducted or worked on hydrocarbon projects in most of the active petroleum-bearing basins of the world. He is recognized as an expert in reservoir characterization of conventional and unconventional reservoirs including those in tight gas, coalbed methane, all types of siliclastic and carbonate reservoirs. He has presented seminars in more than 26 nations on aspects of these topics. He has authored or co-authored two books on applied and practical petrophysics plus numerous papers on the topic. His academic teaching experiences have been in the areas of petrology, petrophysics, and environmental geology. While the AAPG Geoscience director, he led a tenfold increase in titles published including digital and book releases. He has received honors for work on the local level in the Rocky Mountains, Canada, China, and the Middle East. He was recognized as a Society of Petroleum Engineer's Distinguished Lecturer in 1994-95 traveling Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and the United States focusing on the importance of rock-log calibration in reservoir characterization. Professional memberships include the AAPG, SPE, SPWLA, TGS, RMAG. He is past leader of the SEPM Clastic Diagenesis Research Group, Sigma Xi (Local), and Sigma Gamma Epsilon. He received BA and MS degrees from the Miami of Ohio University and a PhD from the University of Oklahoma.
