Course Description

In the age of Big Data and a lean oil and gas economic environment, understanding the importance of all acquired data, both vintage and recent is critical to optimize the G&G workflow. All data, from drilling through to LWD and Wireline to production provides important geological information. Introducing Petrophysicists to the geological information and geologist to the vital petrophysical parameters provides a wealth of untapped information vital to building a geological model and understanding the characterisation of your reservoir. This course is aimed at providing a foundation in understanding complex geological tools, such as borehole images and integrating these with core data and how to integrate petrophysical data such as magnetic resonance, elemental capture spectroscopy, sonic scanner and traditional open-hole logs, as well as mud logs.

Course Objectives

The primary objectives of this course is to;

  • Highlight the key features of different clastic environments
  • Understand the importance of core data integration
  • Acquire a basic understanding of the use of borehole images
  • Review the need for complex petrophysical tools and the key geological features
  • Take a relook at open-hole vintage data, and understand its importance in integrated studies
  • Tie in production data, to geology and identify ideal tool strings to maximise acquisition requirements


Participants Profile

This course is for Geoscientists, petrophysicists, exploration managers, technical project managers who have a basic understanding of geology and/or petrophysics who need to learn how to maximise the geological knowledge gleaned from data, both vintage and recent complex tools. The aim of the course is to help improve the participants efficiency in acquiring the right type of data for a particular geological setting. Improve their geological model, utilising all field data from Drilling, LWD, Wireline and Production.


Dr. Melissa Johansson (Principle Geologist and CEO of Geode-Energy)

Dr. Melissa Johansson is a Principal Geologist, specialised in clastic and carbonate sedimentology, particularly marine environmental settings both deep-water. She had 17 years industrial experience with Schlumberger, working from numerous locations around the world and thus within many Geological Settings. She had worked in a variety of positions but my main skill is Geological image interpretation and Facies Modeling, working mainly within a GeoFrame Software System, Techlog and Petrel. Whilst based in China, And also she was a Project Manager, leading two major projects, which involved well placement using seismic inversion and Geological Modeling Volcaniclastics in Bohai Bay. After which, she managed many major projects in Qatar on Platform Carbonates, ranging from microporosity to fracturing. For the last three years she was the Geology Domain for Wireline Brunei, Malaysia, and Philippines supporting acquisition of imaging tools and sidewall core, as well as peer reviewing geology solution products.
