Using Gas Data

11 October 2023 - 12 October 2023

Using Gas Data examines interpretations of the gases measured or collected by the mud logging contractor that can be made at the wellsite or geological office as drilling proceeds. The course covers the technologies used to extract gases from the drilling fluid as it returns to the surface, knowledge of which is important when considering data quality. Post-drilling uses of gas samples collected at the wellsite are introduced including carbon and hydrogen isotope analysis.
