This course is intended to provide an overview of the physics of common borehole acoustic modes, the challenges and techniques of the their measurement, processing and quality control along with the applications of the answers across a wide range of problems from input to seismic and petrophysical models through to understanding rock mechanics and stress. It will also cover the history of borehole acoustic logging and an overview of modern tool design, both logging-while-drilling and wireline, including the unique concerns of each type of tool. This course will build from first principles and is applicable to all those with an interest in borehole acoustic measurements and their applications or who commonly incorporate this kind of data into their daily work.

Since joining Schlumberger in 1997 Matthew has filled a variety of roles, all within the field of logging while drilling. He is currently involved in the long term technical development plan for LWD acoustic and seismic technology and their applications within Schlumberger. He has authored and coauthored multiple papers on LWD technology and its uses. A graduate in 1996 from Cambridge University with a Bachelors and a Masters in Engineering, he is a member of the SPWLA, SPE, SEG and ASA and has served as both a VP and as President of the Houston SPWLA chapter. He is currently the secretary of the SPWLA Sonic SIG and is a 2016/2017 SPWLA Distinguished Speaker.
