|Integrated Carbonate Reservoir Characterization - ICR|
|Structural and Stratigraphic Interpretation of Dipmeters and Borehole-Imaging Logs - SSI|
|Petrophysics of Unconventional Reservoirs - PUR|
|Integration of Rocks, Log and Test Data - ILC|
Duration: 5 days
Instructor(s): Zaki Bassiouni, John Sneider
|This course provides the background necessary to address the more complex reservoir evaluation and productivity challenges within exploration, field appraisal, and field development. The key fundamentals of rock properties, logging tools, and engineering data required to solve these problems are reviewed. The concepts are illustrated with a series of real world examples that become increasingly complex as knowledge is gained in the class. Emphasis is placed on solving problems in a workshop format.|
Petrophysicists, petroleum reservoir engineers, geologists, and geophysicists who have a basic understanding of petrophysics, geology, and engineering and need a more advanced understanding of how to integrate the different data sets together to more completely understand reservoir performance. It is recommended that participants have a basic knowledge of logging fundamentals. The basics of logging will be reviewed in the class.

DR. ZAKI BASSIOUNI retired from Louisiana State University (LSU) after 31 years of service in July 2008. He was a professor and chair of the Craft and Hawkins Department of Petroleum Engineering from July 1983 to June 2004 and Dean of the College of Engineering from 2004 to 2008. In addition to his academic contributions and publications, Dr. Bassiouni has provided technical expertise to the international oil and gas industries. He has conducted training in more than thirty countries worldwide. He is the author of the Society of Petroleum Engineers Textbook Series Vol. 4 'Theory, Measurement, and Interpretation of Well Logs'. Dr. Bassiouni received a BS in Petroleum Engineering from Cairo University, a diploma in Geophysics from the Ecole Nationale Superieure de Petrole et des Moteurs of Paris, France, and an MS (DEA) and PhD (Docteur Es Sciences) from the University of Lille, France.
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.
