Intergraded Carbonate Reservoir Characterisation Training Course
This course is designed to develop skill in understanding the geometry and petro physical characteristics of carbonate reservoirs. Depositional fabric, grain type and size and subsequent diagenetic modifications are the major controls on carbonate reservoir behavior. The complex inter-relationship of three-dimensional reservoir models. Sequence stratigraphy is powerful framework for modeling and predicting the distribution of carbonate and evaporates reservoir and seals. The course demonstrates the value of the reservoir model in volumetric assessment and development of carbonate reservoirs. Extensive practical sessions can utilize the client’s own data or Training provider’s non-exclusive data.
|WHO SHOULD ATTEND|
|Petroleum geologist, explorationists, petrophysicists, geophysicists and engineers involved with exploration of carbonate plays and development of carbonate reservoirs. Previous knowledge of carbonate sedimentology is not required.|
|Carbonate reservoirs: Basic principle, depositional concepts, grain types, texture and fabric, environmental reconstruction.
The reservoir model – depositional and diagenetic characteristics, Sabkha/tidal flat; lagoon, shelf, reef (rudist and coral/algal); barrier/shoal and redeposited, aeolian and lacustrine, karst plays.
Carbonate diagenesis: primary and secondary porosity, compaction, pressure solution, cementation, dolomitisation, porosity generation and destruction, fractures.
Carbonate and evaporite sequence stratigraphy: system tracts, key surface, contrasting windward and leeward stacking patterns, carbonate – evaporite cycles, carbonate seismic stratigraphy.
Log response in carbonate rocks: Gamma, sonic, neutron, density, FMS
Reservoir assessment: Fracture reservoirs, reservoir modeling, volumetric assessment in correlation and mapping, effects of capillary pressure, interface with engineering.
