Topics include:

  • Common depth markers: marker types and their core and log expressions
  • Principles of core depth correction
  • Common oil sands facies and their core and log signatures
  • Identification of common ichnofossils on core and their significance in facies interpretation
  • Wabiskaw-McMurray stratigraphy and their depositional model evolution
  • Common core sample types for lab analysis and general sample selection guidelines
  • Core depth correction: core-based vs image-based with software assistance
  • Oil Sands Laboratory tour



About the instructor: Dr. Greg Hu is a co-founder and CEO of Loring Tarcore Labs. As an oil sands veteran with extensive experience in core logging, especially oil sands core, he created and holds a patent for DIGITAL CORE WORKLFOW METHOD USING DIGITAL CORE IMAGES. Based on this patent, he designed a digital core image based core logging software (Tarcore Technology). This software is integrated into the lab process to ensure a highly efficient lab workflow for large-volume core handling and testing.
