Course Content

Being able to interpret environments of deposition using open-hole logs is a skill most geologists and engineers desire. As important as this skill is, not many publications and industry courses fulfill this need. The purpose of this course is to use a systematic approach that uses the process of elimination to diagnose common fluvial, shallow marine and deepwater depositional environments in well log suites such as Gamma Ray, Resistivity and Porosity and in Borehole Image and Dipmeter Logs. Borehole image logs are commonly acquired but are often under-utilized when it comes to interpreting environments of deposition. Most geoscientists and engineers are somewhat familiar with picking faults and fractures on image logs, but the same professionals will often rely on reports provided by the logging company for sedimentology and stratigraphy. This 2-day course is taught in a workshop format and after a morning lecture session, afternoons are devoted to interpretation of logs provided by the instructor.
