Why Choose this Training Course?

Participants to this 5-day intensive Reservoir Characterization training course should be geologists and engineers who deal with all risked variables to decide where, when and why to drill and what is expected from this drilling on both short and long term and finally how to maximize the life and return from such drilling.

By choosing this PetroKnowledge training course, the participants will be able to evaluate all type of involved data; good or bad, important or less important, rank different interpretation, risk all possible probabilities and conclude the best applicable scenario to work with. Participants will able, despite their different working sectors, to deal with: variable type of rocks, petrophysical parameters involved, multiple diagenesis, analyze the main facies in concern (barriers or reservoirs) ,interpretation of logs, maps, correlations and data distribution.

This training course will highlight:


Training Objectives

What are the Goals?

The main goal of this PetroKnowledge training course is to enrich the participant’s knowledge with in-depth interpreted sedimentological, reservoir, logging and seismic, among others. By the end of this training course, participants will learn to:

  • Define rocks parameters involved in Reservoir Characterization
  • Integrate all available data to define reservoir geometry
  • Study and define depositional environment Vs. flow units
  • Distribute physical parameters, and flow properties in a reservoir.
  • Learn to work with sedimentology experts defining reservoir facies
  • Link facies to reservoir connectivity, and flow properties (Ø, K, Sw, etc).
  • Build Geologic models that help capture reservoir heterogeneities and uncertainties
  • Get HC volumes distribution from reservoir models
  • Assist in geo-steering wells to optimum locations, and provide input to reservoir simulation

Target Audience

Who is this Training Course for?

This PetroKnowledge training course is for all professionals in the exploration and reservoir engineering departments and geoscientists in the development sector, but it is mainly designed to for:

  • Strategic engineers
  • Petrophysicists
  • Managers
  • Geologists
  • Geo-modeler
  • Reservoir Engineers
  • Geophysicists

Training Methods

How will this Training Course be Presented?

The instructor will involve the participants not only by showing and interpreting the training course material in detail, but they will work together by projecting their previous knowledge onto the course. Several real examples will be studied from: USA, Algeria, Colombia, Kuwait, Nigeria and France to elaborate on the role of reservoir characterization to modeling. During the training course path, a self -evaluation point quizzes will be run to stimulate all brains no matter which discipline
