The Petrophysics training focused on fluid saturation measurements from boreholes in oil and gas reservoirs.

Almost exactly the same process as X-ray tomography performed in medical centers for diagnostic purposes, seismic acoustic tomography is a process where sound is sent into water and the sounds that are bounced back from multi-layered complex earth model blocks indicate many seismic properties important to oil exploration, such as velocities, porosities and fluid saturation.
The rate of homogeneous nucleation increases very sharply with increasing fluid saturation pressure up to approximately 21 MPa, and then levels out at higher pressures.
This is contrary to the early production history of offsetting Bakken wells in the region, but production may improve due to the requirement to reduce the hydrostatic pressure on the reservoir and to reduce frac and kill fluid saturation in the near wellbore.
30 sidewall cores were also shot over the whole hydrocarbon-bearing section between 3,807 and 3,171 feet and submitted to Corelab's laboratory in Bakersfield for permeability, porosity, fluid saturation and laser particle size determinations.
The principal goal of the Study will be to examine the response of seismic data, and optionally electromagnetic data, to changes in fluid saturation.
Rock Solid Images provides solutions for seismic reservoir characterization, and specializes in the integration of surface seismic and borehole data to build seismic-scale models of reservoir properties such as porosity and fluid saturation.
Once these measurements are completed during the coming weeks the cores will be sealed and sent to a laboratory for routine core analysis to measure porosity, permeability and residual fluid saturation.
Rock Solid Images, headquartered in Houston, Texas, provides solutions for seismic reservoir characterization, and specializes in the integration of surface seismic and borehole data to build seismic-scale models of reservoir properties such as porosity and fluid saturation.
With our new Q-based modeling technology, we have added a new dimension that will allow us to more accurately predict lithology, porosity, and fluid saturation in the sub-surface.
