Routine & Special Core Analysis

Code Date Venue Fee ($)

Who should attend?

Petrophysists, reservoir engineers, petroleum engineers, geologists, geoscientist, geophysicists and professionals who wants firm grounding in special core analysis.

About the course

This course presents detailed discussion and explanation for Special Core Analysis in the oil and gas industry. Topics covering Flow Zone Units determination, core handling, relative permeability measurements and models, capillary pressure measurements and models and wettability will be covered. Concepts will be explored and presented interactively. Upon completion of this course, participants will gain an extensive understanding of the fundamental theoretical and practical aspects of relative permeability,capillary pressure and wettability, how to measure and predict those properties. The course includes a number of real-life examples to consolidate the theoretical framework covered.
