About this Training Course

This 5-day course has been designed to develop skills in understanding the geometry and petrophysical characteristics of carbonate reservoirs.

Depositional fabric, grain type and size and subsequent diagenetic modifications are the major controls on carbonate reservoir behaviour. The complex inter-relationship of the depositional and burial history can be unravelled to allow prediction of reservoir facies and reconstruction of three-dimensional reservoir models.

The course will demonstrate the value of the reservoir model in volumetric assessment and development of carbonate reservoirs.

Key objectives in attending:

  • Understand carbonate depositional systems and controls.
  • Recognise and model controls on reservoir quality and pore systems, including diagenesis and fracturing.
  • Understand and apply carbonate seismic stratigraphy and sequence stratigraphy.
  • Interpret log responses.

This training course is designed for all professionals involved with exploration of carbonate plays and development of carbonate reservoirs, but will greatly benefits

  • Explorationist
  • Geologist
  • Geo-modeler
  • Geophysicist
  • Managers
  • Petroleum geologist
  • Petrophysicists
  • Reservoir Engineers
  • Strategic engineers

Your expert course leader is a Director and Senior Consultant Geologist who has worked on various carbonate consultancy projects, conducted detailed sedimentological, sequence stratigraphic and diagenetic technical studies and delivered training programmes. He was formerly Managing Director of Robertson UK Limited and was responsible for the integration between different disciplines, recognition, and encouragement of technical innovation and research and development programmes across all oil and gas divisions in the company. He was also responsible for all aspects of the performance of the main Geological, Geophysical and Reservoir Engineering Services in the company.
