Course Overview -— Techniques for Hydrocarbon Detection and Evaluation
This course is intended to introduce through lectures and exercises current concepts and techniques needed for properly detecting and evaluating hydrocarbon shows. The session includes both scientific background and practical application. It clarifies terminology, stresses methodology and reporting procedures. The course includes a training manual.
Exploration, Production, and Well Site Geologists, Reservoir Engineers
Upon completion of this course participants should be able to:
differentiate between solid and dead hydrocarbons
given a set of well samples, properly detect hydrocarbons using suitable combinations of nine different hydrocarbon tests
list five routine hydrocarbon detection methods and describe what these can tell you about hydrocarbon quality
outline proceedure for reporting hdrocarbon shows and information recorded on lithlogs or well site reports.
