Interpretation and Analysis of Old Logs
ENCORE PRESENTATION Back by popular request!
A One-Day Short Course

Tuesday, November 28th 

Bill Price
Petrophysical Solutions Inc.


Well over 1 million wells were drilled in the US and the rest of the world before 1960.  Many of these wells still form our understanding of the subsurface in most large fields and in smaller ones, too. What makes these wells particularly difficult to understand and interpret?

A review of the early history of logging and the myriad of logging tools will be given with hands-on learning examples.  After class, students will be able to identify the types of electrical tools and the appropriate methods to properly interpret them.


• To understand that not all Resistivity logs are the same;
• To be able to recognize the Type of Resistivity log you are trying to interpret;
• To be able to apply correct interpretation estimations;
• To be able to recognize true potential Bypassed Pay from deep invasions of drilling fluids;
• Get more or most out of what logs you might have for old areas;
• What is reasonable, and what’s not
