Shale Petrophysics Using PRIZM

This course focuses on Shale Petrophysics with analysis and interpretation of open hole log curves using GeoGraphix PRIZM. GeoGraphix PRIZM's powerful tools combined with advanced workflows will be utilized to develop petrophysical models for oil and gas Shale Reservoirs.

After completion of this course, you will have developed a systematic workflow to analyze open hole log data and generate petrophysical models for evaluating oil and gas Shale Reservoirs. You will complete the following workflows:

  • Import and Display Curve Data
  • Check Imported Data for Omissions and Quality
  • Matrix Mineralogy and Matrix Transforms
  • Inspect Curve Data with Histograms
  • SP Baseline Shift and GR Normalization
  • Shale versus Clay volumes and Uranium Index
  • Apparent Total Porosity and Effective Porosity
  • Formation Water Resistivity from Pickett Plot Analysis
  • Mineralogy Model and Reservoir Rock Type
  • Saturation Model and Pay Zones
  • Organic Carbon Model and High TOC Zones
  • Rock Mechanics Model and Brittle versus Ductile Zones

Prerequisites Recommended
It will be an added advantage if the user attending this course has attended the GeoGraphix Conventional Petrophysics using PRIZM class or the user has a working knowledge of the PRIZM software

This class is based on a lecture by the instructor along with hands-on exercises on the computer from the training manual.

Intended For
This course is highly recommended for experienced PRIZM users involved with evaluation of oil and gas Shale Reservoirs including Petrophysicists, Geoscientists, Engineers, Technicians or anyone involved with petrophysical log analysis and interpretation.
