Morgantown, W.Va. — The Appalachian Basin Petroleum Technology Transfer Council (PTTC) located at West Virginia University’s National Research Center for Coal and Energy is co-hosting a one-day advanced well logging workshop with the Appalachian Geological Society on February 12, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Waterfront Place Hotel in Morgantown. The workshop will feature experts from Baker Hughes, Schlumberger, and Weatherford.

Instructors will focus on advanced tools designed to give more information about the physical nature and mineral content of an underground resource, whether it is an oil or gas reservoir or a coal seam, without the need for sending rock samples to laboratories for analysis. Information can be gathered immediately at the site saving time. “These well logs are like an EKG of a rock formation,” said Doug Patchen, PTTC director.

Registration is limited to 75 students. The registration fee is $100 for those whose paid registrations are received prior to the February 5 and $125 after February 5.
