This self-directed course covers advanced petrophysical methods for calculating mechanical rock properties for stimulation design and seismic attributrs, how to modernize ancient and Russian-style logs, uses and interpretation of dipmeter and image logs, structure and stratigraphic analysis, seismic petrophysics, and cement and pipe integrity logs. These are the valuable "back of the book" topics usually ignored by instructors and upper management that can make or break exploitation projects. This is a practical, no-nonsense course covering both visual and numerical analysis methods, with numerous real-world examples.

Item #AV-02:  640 narrated slides presented as 13 video lectures (0.5 to 1 hour per lecture),
13 sets Lecture Notes with exercise materials,
Access to all META/LOGTM spreadsheet software to simplify your daily work.

See Sample Videos HERE.

RECOMMENDED FOR: All geoscientists, geotechs, engineers, and managers, from CEOs to new hires and old-timers who need a refresher.

Put my 50+ years of practical world-wide petrophysical experience to work for you!
