Course Description


Participants to the “Coring and Conventional Core Analysis” online training course are those who want to enrich their geological, geophysical, petrophysical and reservoir engineering knowledge and experience with some real rock data and knowing where this data is coming from and how they were interpreted in addition to the in-depth background on how to maximize the usage of such 3d real data in hand.

By choosing this GLOMACS online training course, all attendees will differentiate between good and bad data, how to retrieve what they need from core reports, link their work and interpretation to solid conclusive material especially for facies, zonation and petrophysical parameters.

All attendees will have a strong background on knowing what analysis, lab work, and even type of methods used to request once the core is ready as well as having a good quality control scheme on presented data by the coring company.

One thing that is very important for both geologist and reservoir engineers is to have a reasonable justification and explanation to some odd reservoir behavior and ambiguities. 

This GLOMACS online training course will cover:

  • Why we need a core and what is the maximum we can get from it?
  • How to have a good core and accurate analysis?
  • The application of core data and analysis onto reservoir rock evaluation
  • How core can help explaining odd reservoir behavior and ambiguities?
  • All type of tools and lab analysis that we can have, what they provide per reservoir type
  • All core interpreted data linked to environment of deposition, modeling and volumetric


The main goals of this online training course on Coring and Conventional Core Analysis are to enrich the participant’s knowledge with in-depth core data, understand the coring procedure and its importance, maximize the usage of core analysis, learn the benefit of core interpreted data to geologists and engineers, create the best justification several reservoir behavior ambiguities and link all results in hand to future facies/zonation and modeling.

By the end of this online training course, participants will hopefully learn to:

  • Know the vital role of coring
  • Understand the benefits of core analysis
  • Maximize the usage of core data
  • Understand and justify possible reservoir behavior ambiguities
  • Apply interpreted core data to environment and facies

Training Methodology

This online training course will utilize a variety of proven online learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension, retention of the information presented. The training course is conducted Online via an Advanced Virtual Learning Platform in the comfort of any location of your choice.

Organisational Impact

The organization will gain a lot through its attendees of this training course as:

  • The candidates will all have the same coring, et al background
  • More and better team members (G&G&RE) work will prevail
  • Skills acquired during this course will have a direct impact on resolving several reservoir ambiguities
  • Each company will have a better coring evaluation from all respected attendees concerning best usage of core data
  • The company will learn, through its attendees, how to get the best and safest cost and time effective core operation
  • The organization will have a direct link between core sedimentology and future modeling

Personal Impact

In addition to the company direct and indirect benefit there is a personal impact on all attendees despite their different backgrounds:

  • Participants will gain huge amount of details on the coring process from planning to data usage
  • All attendees will share an understanding of the direct impact of core data onto their real and practical working life
  • Application of sedimentological and petrophysical interpretation will reveal and solve lot of geological and reservoir engineering ambiguities of the participants
  • Attendees will learn how to better prepare for any static and dynamic modeling
  • By learning a piece of sedimentary facies and depositional environments, reservoir and petroleum engineers will have an added points to their careers
  • On the other side geologist will help their career growth by learning how to link and merge all reservoir data onto their imaginary geophantasmogram, etc.


This GLOMACS online training course suits all exploration and development staff and reservoir engineers but it is mainly designed to for:

  • Petrophysicists
  • Geologists and Modeler
  • Reservoir Engineers
  • Geophysicists
