                                Mud Logging Definition

                                Introduction to Geology and Sedimentology

                                           ▪ Main rocks types

                                           ▪ Geological Structures

                                           ▪ Geological Ages

                                           ▪ Hydrocarbons generation and migration

                                           ▪ Geological phenomena and drilling problems: some examples

                 • Practical Session and Acquisition Chain

                              Practical Session: Recognize these rocks!

                                           ▪ Geological laboratory based practical covering the use of microscopes,

                                                   sample preparation, analysis and descriptions.


                             The Acquisition Chain:

                                           ▪ Sensors, signals and systems

                                           ▪ Workshop practical to see what the sensors look, like and fit into the

                                                 acquisition chain.

                                           ▪ Monitoring drilling operations

                                           ▪ Drilling aids: MSE, Vibrations, Pick up – Slack off

                                           ▪ Reporting – Mud Log, daily reports

                                           ▪ Case studies

                                           ▪  Classroom based case studies to demonstrate the use of the data collected

                                                  at the rig site and how this data is reported and logged.

                 • Acquisition Chain and Gas detection

                            End of Acquisition Chain

                            Understanding of Gas Detection

                                           ▪ Origin of the gas in the mud

                                           ▪ Degassing process

                                           ▪ Degassing technologies

                                           ▪ Types of gas analysis

                                           ▪ Workshop practical to see what the degassing & analyzer

                                                      equipment is comprised of and how it works.

                                           ▪ Interpretation generalities

                                           ▪ Gas in and Gas out

                                           ▪ Case Studies

                  • Classroom based case studies to demonstrate the use of gas data collected at the rig site and

                         how this data is reported and logged.

                  • Acquisition Chain and Gas detection (continued)
