Webinar Summary: Well Logging Analysis in Geothermal

On Friday, August, 26th at 4:00 PM the RWTH Aachen SPE student Chapter would like to invite you for the Webinar, on the topic:

Well Logging Analysis in Geothermal


About the Speaker:

Marino is a professional geologist, with almost 20 years in both petroleum and geothermal experiences and achievements, he is a proven key contributor to successful integrated multi-discipline projects from exploration to development stages, leading and executing exploration surveys, drilling programs, and various studies to provide technical solutions and increase productions. Marino started his career as a geologist in several service oil companies, he worked as geologist at Schlumberger from 2003 until 2007, then as Geologist at Chevron from 2007 until 2013, then worked at ConocoPhillips as Geologist from 2013 – 2017. He also worked for five years as Chief Exploration Geologist at Supreme Industry from 2017-2022. During his work at Supreme Energy, he was responsible for all exploration related activities from geology, geochemistry and geophysical surveys to exploration drilling planning and execution and responsible in field data gathering and interpretation of new prospect areas in Indonesia.

Location: online via Zoom

No. of participants: 27

On the 26th of August 2022, the SPE RWTH Aachen Student Chapter had the pleasure to welcome Mr. Marino Baroek a geology expert with 20 years of experience in both the Petroleum and Geothermal industry, to hold a presentation about “Well Logging in Geothermal”. The session was participated in by students of RWTH Aachen Applied Geoscience students and international participants either came from industry or academia, and there were 27 people took part in the event.

Mr. Marino started his presentation by talking about geothermal systems and the conceptual model. Next, Mr. Marino discussed the basic concept of well design. Mr. Marino shared a comprehensive review with respect to the well logging in geothermal, starting from formation evaluation, wireline logging tool types, fractures characterization using well logging, fracture permeability relationship, as well as geomechanics.

After that Mr. Marino continued to explain the challenges and mitigation of conducting well logging for geothermal exploration. Mr. Marino also provided a detailed technical description of each challenge and its mitigation.

At the end of the presentation, a Q&A session was open where participants had the opportunity to ask questions either through the chat box or directly to Mr. Marino. The high level of interest in the topic was demonstrated by many questions regarding fracture data analysis, conceptual model, and the logging instruments. Mr. Marino answered and discussed all questions. On behalf of all students and SPE Student Chapter at RWTH Aachen University, we would like to thank Mr. Marino for sharing the valuable insights on Well Logging in Geothermal Industry and we would like to wish him all the best in his career and hope to see him again in our SPE Student Chapter.
