Applied Petrophysics for Geologists and Engineers
Instructor: Eric Eslinger
EGI and The College of Saint Rose
3 – 7 June 2013
Hotel Holiday Inn Baruna, Bali
This cour se intr oduces the basics of well log analysis and petr ophysics with a focus on dir ect
field applications. Miner alogical influence on well logs and integr ation of cor e data with logs
will be str essed. Intr oductor y concepts, examples, and exer cises will be facilitated via r ealtime class use of a cr oss-platfor m lithology-based petr ophysical softwar e package (GAMLS).
Each student needs to br ing a PC laptop for class work. Installation of executables and
upload of files will be done at least one week pr ior to star t of class. Minimum computer
r equir ements: 4 GB RAM (Windows 7 & >4 GB RAM pr efer r ed) plus Excel.
