Maximising the Use of Core and Core Analysis Data
Dr Adam K Moss – AKM Geoconsulting Ltd

Core is a valuable but under-used resource. Core analysis data can be used as primary inputs into reservoir and petrophysical interpretation models. This course presents strategies for maximising the use of core and ensuring successful data delivery and use. It is designed for those who are planning to cut core, and for geoscientists that work with legacy data.

The course included:

  • Best practice in coring, core handling, processing.
  • Heterogeneity, mineralogy and scale of measurements and their effects on core analysis data.
  • Designing a core analysis test programme for all stakeholders.
  • Understanding laboratory reports and quality checking of core analysis data.
  • An appreciation and understanding of the fundamental core measurements: grain density, porosity, water saturation and permeability.

Teaching included a combination of short lectures, practical workshops and plenary discussions to consolidate learning. Attendees had the opportunity to share their own experiences, discuss data and explore any issues they may have had relating to core and core analysis data.
