Basic Log Analysis for the Marginal Well Operator

If you ever heard of Basic Petroleum Geology for the Non-Geologist by Dr. Norman Hyne, this is Basic Log Analysis for the Marginal Well Operator by Mike Stafford. Formation Evaluation & Log Analysis is a deep and complex science that requires years of practice before one can really be considered proficient at the subject. However, the Marginal Well Operator that understands the basic science of what the tools are actually measuring along with the story the tools are telling will make sound and confident decisions whether his or her well has economically productive formations behind-pipe. This purpose of this course is to provide the Marginal Operator with the tools and knowledge to be confident in interpreting open-hole resistivity and porosity logs in order to be able to determine formation lithology and to calculate initial saturations and moveable oil. This will include determining formation temperature formation water resistivity (Rw), sample lag time and other useful subjects as time permits. This workshop will be held in a computer lab and be a hands-on learning experience using downloaded logs and MS Excel. Please bring a simple calculator capable of performing squares and square roots.

Leasing in Today's World

As the Oil and Gas industry has evolved, so has the Oil and Gas Lease. The Oil and Gas Lease is the basic instrument used in oil and gas development that controls the relationship between the operator and mineral owner. This relationship is can be adversarial, but should be symbiotic.

An Oil and Gas Lease is the document that controls how payments and future exploration will occur. It is the legal instrument executed by a mineral owner that grants the exclusive right to another to explore, drill and produce Oil and Gas from a particular piece of land.

This class will examine some of the recent clauses that are have become popular, while examine how they affect the operator as well as the royalty owner. Remember, virtually everything in the Oil and Gas Lease is negotiable.

Total workshop cost: $0.00 | Schedule: 3:00pm-5:00pm
