Technical: Core analysis - Best practice.

Core analysis provides the only direct and quantitative measurement of the intact reservoir properties and should provide the foundation for formation evaluation.

Course Type


Too frequently core analysis planning and programme design are done poorly and the results are often confusing or contradictory. It is conservatively estimated that 50% of special core analysis (SCAL) data are unfit for purpose due to poor data quality or programme design.

This industry-leading, fully independent training course will provide participants with a solid grounding in the acquisition, evaluation and implementation of routine (RCA) and SCAL data. On completion, the participants will be able to design core analysis programmes, recognise and correct questionable data, and will be better placed to appreciate the importance of quality core analysis in integrated studies. The knowledge gained is reinforced by practical sessions and reference to real core analysis reports.


You will learn:

  • the principal routine and special core analysis methods

  • about data uncertainties and sensitivities

  • how to interpret RCA and SCAL reports - both old and new

  • how to design core test programmes

  • how to quality control and evaluate RCA and SCAL tests

  • how to make better use of core analysis data in reservoir models

Who should attend?

Reservoir engineers, geoscientists and petrophysicists who wish to find out more about the principles and practices of core analysis data interpretation, and better appreciate their application in reservoir modelling.

Attendees should be familiar with basic petrophysics and/or reservoir engineering principles, perhaps having used core data.
