This course takes a detailed look at carbonate rocks and the sediments that make up these rocks, and examines concepts and models of diagenetic changes in carbonates.
Course Duration: 3 modules of max. 4 hours each, delivered over 3 days Each day will consist of 1 module which will be no more than 4 hours in length with ample time for delegates to break for refreshments.
Course Level: Foundation / Skill Instructor: Simonetta Cirilli
Designed for you, if you are...
A professional in sedimentary geology and petroleum geology who is currently involved in development or exploration of carbonate reservoirs, e.g. drilling engineer, geologist, geophysicist, reservoir engineer
How we build your confidence
Combination of live instructor-led training, demonstrations and case studies
The benefits from attending
By the end of the course you will feel confident in your understanding of:
Carbonate facies and how to relate them to the original depositional environment
Depositional architectures based on the available data of outcrops and well logs and how to reconstruct the depositional scenarios in time and space
How to reconstruct and correlate at small and large scale the sedimentary sequences
How to extrapolate from the available data of outcrops (surficial analogous) the subsurface geology
How to link the acquired knowledge to the exploration petroleum geology
Basic nature of carbonates
Carbonate depositional settings and facies models
Sequence stratigraphic models including the ramp, the rimmed shelf, the escarpment margin, the isolated platform, and the mixed carbonate-siliciclastic shelf
Characteristics of carbonate pore systems
Diagenesis, porosity evolution, and porosity distribution
Applications : How to use the sedimentary facies knowledge for oil and gas development or exploration (Case histories and exercises from the different areas)
