Formation evaluation of thinly-bedded reservoirs is the subject of a short course taught at AAPG’s Summer Education Conference in Fort Worth. The course, which will be held on June 20, will teach participants how to use well logs to calculate hydrocarbon pore volume in thinly bedded clastic reservoirs, and have a practical overview of the issues, uncertainties, technical methods, and a systematic approach to solutions. The instructor, Dr. Quinn Passey, is the Senior Formation Evaluation Consultant at ExxonMobil.

Topics will include:

  • Definitions and Geological Occurrence of Thin Beds
  • Identification of Thin Beds using Well Data
  • Characterizing Thin Beds with Cores and Images
  • Petrophysical Properties of Thinly Bedded Formations
  • Modeling Log Responses in Thinly Bedded Reservoirs
  • High-resolution Techniques
  • Low-resolution Techniques

For more information about the course, please visit the website:

The course, which is a part of the Summer Education Conference, is ideal for Reservoir Geologists, Petrophysicists, Log Analysts, Exploration Managers, Reservoir Engineers, and Geologic Modelers interested in an overview of the issues and techniques associated with thin beds. Some basic acquaintance with well logging and log-based formation evaluation techniques will be beneficial.
