Conventional and Special Core Analysis


Reservoir/Production Engineers, Geoscientists and senior staff who are involved in reservoir modeling studies, Engineering calculations and simulation who wish to understand the special core analysis needs.


This course covers the technique to be used for accurate representation of reservoir rocks and fluid characteristics for reliable reservoir geology and engineering calculations. Participants will learn how to describe accurately the reservoir rocks, their contained fluids and the rock/fluid systems (fluid description and flow performance).
