Using Mudlogging As a Formation Evaluation Tool

Using Mudlogging As a Formation Evaluation Tool
The course gives an overview of mudlogging practices and procedures with an emphasis on using mud gas readings for formation evaluation. Topics covered are common measurements, definitions, quantifying the amount of gas typically seen in reservoirs, a review of bit/cutting interaction with attention paid to flushing, how drilling parameters influence mud gas shows and how surface gas traps, instrumentation and sensors influence the mud gas show. After the review, techniques used to quantify mud log gas show will be presented. The methods presented will be show how to determine gas in place from mud log data. These include calcium carbide lag markers, mud gas normalization, mud gas cross plots, deterministic normalization and rules of thumb. A model will be presented to demonstrate the range of mud gas responses to be anticipated. The final portion of the course will be devoted to mudlog quality control.
