The overall objective of this e-symposium is to review the petrophysics of shales and organic rich shale associated with carbonates. The course will review core data, petrophysical comparisons, rock physics modeling (including pseudo logs and mechanical properties).
Basic Petrophysics: What do these logs reveal about shales?
Interpretations – The Basics with a focus on shale
Resistivity/Porosity cross plots to solve Archie’s equation
Influence of clays
Core Data/Petrophysical comparisons
Fluid saturations oil/water/gas
Core upscaling – to match log measurements
Organic rich shale associated with carbonates
Shale petrophysical model
Free vs. adsorbed hydrocarbons
Rock physics modeling
Pseudo logs to verify porosity log integrity
Mechanical properties – brittle vs. ductile
Who Should Attend
Geologists, geophysicists, engineers and other explorationists who need a better understanding of the petrophysical aspects of shales and carbonates.
45 minutes of video lectures

Since its founding in 1917, the American Association of Petroleum Geologists has been a pillar of the worldwide scientific community. The original purpose of AAPG, to foster scientific research, to advance the science of geology, to promote technology, and to inspire high professional conduct, still guides the Association today.
AAPG provides publications, conferences, and educational opportunities to geoscientists and disseminates the most current geological information available to the general public.
As the world's premier professional association for explorationists, AAPG is about the science of petroleum geology.
It's also about the people.
AAPG's membership is made up of more than 40,000 members in 129 countries in the upstream energy industry who collaborate – and compete – to provide the means for humankind to thrive.
AAPG provides the network of communications that allow those professionals to succeed.
We invite you to see who we are, what we are about and to contact us for membership information or details about the many services we provide.
