RokDoc Rock Physics - 3 Days Course

Course Overview:

3 Day Course
This course is intended for new and intermediate users who require an introduction to RokDoc and the rock physics theories behind the software.

The course provides an overview of using RokDoc software for rock physics workflows and analysis.

Delegates are guided through a typical RokDoc workflow, comprising data loading and QC, predicting missing data with calibrated rock physics models, blocky modelling, log-based rock physics analysis and 2D forward modelling.

The course will cover Gassmann dry rock modelling, elastic log analysis, cross-plotting and well ties. Further analysis is then performed in RokDoc 2D to determine the effects of seismic tuning, fluid substitutions, porosity perturbation and noise.

After successfully completing the course, the student should have:

  • Learned how to use the software (and modules) efficiently and effectively to run similar workflows as the ones in the course.
  • Gained insights on rock physics workflows, data editing, predicting missing data and 2D forward modelling.
