Log Analysis of Hydrocarbon-Bearing Shales / Instructor Dr. George Asquith

This is a one day course that will include background material on hydrocarbon-bearing shales, methods of evaluation, and case studies of both gas and oil bearing shales. In addition the students will be provided an EXCEL spreadsheet plus digital data from organic shale in order to do log analysis on their laptop computer. They will first determine the degree of thermal maturity from the log data in order to determine if they are going to use the EXCEL spreadsheet for oil or gas. The analysis will include how the geologist/engineer can vary values in the EXCEL spreadsheet for changes in matrix and clay mineralogy and how these changes affect OOIPstb or OGIPscf calculations.

Who Should Attend: Geologists and Engineers working on the evaluation of hydrocarbon-bearing shales

Prerequisite: A basic knowledge of Well Log Analysis

Learning outcomes: The geologists and engineers should be able to do log analysis including volumetric calculations on hydrocarbon-bearing shales using a standard logging suite.
