RokDoc 1D2D Introduction - 3 Day Course

Event Locations
Houston
Cost per place: $2,900.00 Excl. VAT

Intended for new and intermediate users who require an introduction to RokDoc and the rock physics theories behind the software. 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.

Geomechanics for Unconventionals - 2 Day Course

Event Locations
Houston
Cost per place: $1,900.00 Excl. VAT , register before 01/04/2017 23:59 and save 20.00% on your booking total!

Taught by Jorg Herwanger. The main geomechanical applications in this course will focus on fractures and hydraulic stimulation (fracture orientation and containment, re-activation of pre-existing fractures versus creation of new fractures, shear fractures versus tensile fractures, fault stability), and wellbore stability.

Definition of Uncertainty in Pore Pressure Prediction - 2 Day Course

Event Locations
Houston
Cost per place: $1,900.00 Excl. VAT

The course is aimed at both understanding and reducing uncertainty during well planning and design. Through discussion, you will learn how to consider both data-driven uncertainty as well as process-driven approaches. The ultimate aim is to see if Expected and High Cases can be appropriately risked such that percentage likelihood can be assigned to each.

RokDoc 3D Reservoir Characterisation - 2 Day Course

Event Locations
Houston
Cost per place: $1,900.00 Excl. VAT

Intended for intermediate RokDoc users who require an introduction to Rock Physics Model Templates and RokDoc 3D. Attendees are taken through a series of workflows illustrating the predictive power of rock physics models, before progressing to RokDoc-3D, where the user can model lithologies and fluids, manipulate seismic inversion volumes, create elastic and geological property volumes, and export them to SEG-Y.
