A

provides

the

opportunity

to

include

a

computer
-
assisted

training

session

on

NMR

log

analysis/interpretation,

as

well

as

giving

participants

a

chance

to

learn

from

their

own

data
.

We

have

developed

a

special

edition

of

LogIC

that

provides

each

participant

with

a

fully

functional

log

analysis

package

attached

to

the

data
.

The

software

contains

a

script

to

perform

both

the

standard

NMR

analysis

automatically
.

Participants

can

stop

the

script

at

any

ti me

and

perform

their

own

interpretation
.

The

script

offers

individuals

the

opportunity

to

observe

how

the

software

interprets

their

data,

and

to

learn

how

to

interpret

well

logs,

including

the

NMR,

by

example
.

The

procedure

is

to

load

a

dataset

onto

the

self
-
contained

package,

script

the

software

to

perform

a

standard

or

non
-
standard

analysis,

cut

a

CD,

and

deliver

a

fully

functional

product

to

the

client
.

Petro

physicists

can

go

through

the

scripted

analysis/interpretation,

stop

the

script

and

change

parameters,

bring

in

other

data

from

the

logging

suite,

and

perform

any

operation

contained

in

the

full

LogIC

package
.

The

protocol

for

incorporating

this

self
-
contained

training

module

into

the

course

is

for

interested

individuals

to

provide

the

Dat

tape

at

least

30

days

prior

to

the

course
.

We

will

load,

interpret

and

script

the

data,

and

provide

the

CD

to

participants

before

the

course
.

We

will

use

the

CD

for

"hands

training

on

the

last
