This course is designed for petro physics and reservoir engineers who are involved in formation sampling and testing. To learn about reservoir characterisation using formation testers, to be able to interpret pressure and fluid properties, and to design a successful sampling and testing operation. This class is designed for geophysicists, reservoir engineers and any engineers involved or interested in wireline formation sampling and testing including petro physical engineers, production engineers and testing engineers. There are no special requirements for this course. It is recommended for participants to bring their own examples to contribute to course discussions.
