Course Content

The Society of Petrophysicists and Well Log Analysts (SPWLA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of petrophysics, log and core measurements, formation evaluation techniques, and hydrocarbon, mineral, and water resources. The SPWLA is pleased to showcase a selection of top-rated unconventional reservoir-focused papers presented at its Annual Symposium June 2020. The papers will highlight new technologies and techniques that are designed for the specific issues faced by operators in tight oil/gas formations and shale-rich formations. We will also examine the impact of near-crisis conditions in the oil industry, and how that has altered the approaches to petrophysics analysis and well logging.
