Production Logging Principles

Production Logging Principles


Production & Operations

Course Duration

5 days

Delivery Method


Production logging encompasses several cased or open hole logging measurements usually run in completed injection or production wells to evaluate the performance of the well itself or the reservoir. This course introduces the participants to the theory and practice of single-phase and multi-phase production log interpretation and design.
