There is currently no upcoming sessions available for this course. Please check back later!
This one day course provides an overview of current NMR logging technology, including new applications in unconventional reservoirs. The course includes several case studies and log examples, which are scrutinized by attendees with respect to optimized data acquisition, quality control, and data processing techniques. The course provides examination of T1 and T2 logging, pore size, fluid effects, porosity, bound fluid and permeability models, fluid identification from NMR, review of currently logging tools, applications in unconventional reservoirs and limitations of NMR.
A complete set of course materials and lunch is included in this course.
