Dip Classification on Geological Image logs

22 June 2022
Course Summary
  • This Course gives a review of the different dip classification schemes that are in common usage. Although it is probably true that no one scheme will suite the full range of geological conditions all the time, a strong recommendation is made concerning which of the schemes should be adopted in the world.
  • As a demonstration, one Water-Based-Mud (WBM) and one Oil-Based-Mud (OBM) job have been reviewed to illustrate the differences that the choice of dip classification method can make.

Why Should You Buy This Course?

In essence, the computation of dip values is simply the description of the orientation of a plan that best fits the interface in which we are interested. Dip Picking is the basis upon which all consequent geological analysis and interpretation are built. In actual fact, if the dip picking is not done well, then all that follows will be seriously flawed. In summary, then, the dip picking has a direct impact on the perceived value of the acquisition data.

Course Preparation

  • Learners should have prior knowledge of :
    •  Logging operations & techniques.
    • Understanding of borehole image tools and their application in reservoir characterization.
    • Structural Geology fundamentals.
    • Structures in carbonate and sandstone rocks (basic).
    • Fracture characterization basics.
  • Learners should review and study deeply at least one example of the image log analysis from their company (borehole geological analysis report). The borehole image log could be for vertical and or horizontal well from one of your fields. It could be for sandstone and a carbonate reservoir. It could be for Wireline images or for LWD log.
  • Learners should have access to a computer with internet access.
