Included Modules

Geology and Formation Evaluation

The first Wireline module launches the course by giving insight into what formations are and how they are evaluated. Next, since it is important to understand how hydrocarbons...

What is Wireline Logging?

This next Wireline module begins with an introduction to Wireline logging and what Wireline itself is. Then a history of the wireline is given, showing some of the earliest ad...

Open Hole Tools and Formation Evaluation

In this module, the importance of formation evaluation is examined. And, more specifically, what tools that engineers use to help determine if recovery is profitably possible....

Cased Hole Logging

How does an Open-hole become a Cased hole, and what are the different functions that cased hole tools can perform? These are some of the topics discussed in this Wireline modu...

Wireline Equipment and Well Intervention

This module teaches one of the first things that needs to be learned when using a wireline how to properly attach the tools. Also, terms like Quad combo and cable head are int...

Tool Safety

Module 6 is about tool safety. Nothing is more important when working on a rig than safety. This module stresses the importance of good communication and double checking, and...

Collaborative Data and Oilfield Modeling

This final module is a culmination of what has been learned so far, namely, Wirelines role in oilfield development. How, through geostatistical analysis, a computer representa...

Course Overview

The Wireline course offers detailed insight into what Wireline is and what it is used for. This course has been dynamically structured to promote the easy learning of some of the most complex techniques in oilfield drilling. Students of this course will not be taught to only memorize definitions and terms, but will be shown why certain tools and techniques are used. This allows for a deeper understanding of the material, and better overall course quality. This course will show how Wireline developed along with the tools and technology that are utilized by engineers all around the world. Students are also made aware of proper tool handling techniques to insure the safety of not only themselves, but of all those around them making a more productive and profitable work place. We understand that effectively building confidence in the way students properly and safely handle tools will pay off almost immediately.
