Ashish Datey, August 2018 FESAus speakerFESQ Petrophysics Course

Conducted by Tom Neville (Principal Consultant at Asia-Pacific Formation Evaluation Services and Technical Advisor to Qteq)

Course Outline:

Petrophysical data acquisition
•    Drilling for petrophysics and the borehole environment
•    Mud logging data acquisition
•    Coring and core analysis
•    Wireline and LWD data acquisition

Tool Physics
•    Electromagnetic
•    Nuclear
•    Acoustic

Petrophysical data acquisition
•    Overview of the general petrophysical workflow (with a focus on standard quad-combo measurements)
•    Integrating advanced petrophysical measurements to enhance interpretations (magnetic resonance, dielectrics, and neutron-induced gamma-ray spectroscopy)
•    Integrating core data to enhance interpretations (routine and special core analysis)

Target Audience

Engineers, Geoscientists, (Grad.) Students, Researchers, Technical Managers and Engineering Technologists who are interested in understanding where petrophysical data comes from and how to use it for evaluating the key properties of reservoirs.

About the Presenter:

Tom Neville is currently Principal Consultant at Asia-Pacific Formation Evaluation Services and Technical Advisor to Qteq. After completing a BSc degree in Geology at the University of Queensland, Australia in 1989, Tom worked as an exploration and development geologist for several Australian E&P companies before joining Schlumberger as a petrophysicist in 1996. In the following twenty years Tom held a variety of technical and management positions in operations, engineering, and research with Schlumberger, including Research Director for Reservoir Geosciences at Schlumberger-Doll Research, Formation Evaluation Software Discipline Manager at Schlumberger’s Beijing Geoscience Centre, and Asia/Australasia Petrophysics Advisor for Schlumberger Wireline, before returning to Australia in 2017.
Tom is co-author on over thirty peer-reviewed technical papers, conference presentations, and other publications, and won the Best Paper Award at the 2007 SPWLA Annual Symposium. Tom is also co-inventor on eleven US patents.
Tom is a member of AAPG, SEG, SPE, and SPWLA. He served on the SPWLA International Board of Directors for six years, as Vice President–Information Technology and as Regional Director for Asia/Australasia, and was a member of the SPWLA Technology Committee for five years, and has been a Technical Reviewer for SPE Reservoir Evaluation & Engineering for the past eight years. He is a highly-rated instructor with over fifteen years of experience providing training on all aspects of formation evaluation, including Schlumberger’s internal Reservoir Petrophysics course, which he introduced in 2003 and led for over ten years.
