Reading the Rocks All in Four “Easy” Tracks

Instructor: Dr. Tim Carr, Professor of Geology, West Virginia University

Sponsored by the

Ohio Geological Society

in conjunction with the

Ohio Oil and Gas Association Winter Meeting

When: March 7th, 2018 from 10:00am to 4:00pm with one hour for lunch (on your own) and two-15 minute breaks (provided)
Where: Hilton at Easton Town Center, 3900 Chagrin Dr, Columbus, OH 43219, phone  (614) 414-5000
What: Dr. Carr will lead instruction of four tracks or modules each covering the background, basic concepts, and uses of major geophysical log suites. Each track includes exercises in log analysis using EXCEL spreadsheets. Bring your own laptop with EXCEL loaded.
Who should attend: This course is for new and experienced geologists, geoscience technicians, and engineers who work with geophysical logs and seek to learn how best to use them or refresh their log interpretation skills. OGS will offer 0.5 CEUs or 5 PDHs upon completion of the workshop.
Cost : Professional rate $125 per person; Student rate $100/person with a limit of 10 student tickets.

Overview: Basic questions in the petroleum geosciences require knowledge of the sub-surface reservoir properties, and the spatial distribution of stratigraphic units and facies.  This course is structured around four main tracks of wireline and LWD logs.  Attendees will learn some background and  theory of the log type, but more of the practical applications of select geophysical logs using a range of methods. Attendees will gain hands-on experience to address real-world challenges of understanding the subsurface.  Attendees will get Excel templates and undertake brief exercises around each of the four tracks.  OGS will provide copies of all materials. OGS offers 0.5 CEUs or 5 PDHs to participants upon completion. The four tracks and exercises include:

Track 1 – Gamma Ray and Caliper
Track 2 – Porosity Logs and Lithology
Track 3 – Resistivity and Water Saturation
Track 4 – Sonic and Geomechanics

IMPORTANT: If you have a laptop with Excel, please bring it.  If not, you can look on a table-mates screen.  If you have an LAS log with an interesting question, please feel free to bring it.

Coffee, refreshments in the late morning and in the afternoon will be provided as part of the Workshop. Lunch will be on you own and not part of the workshop.
