We provide a wider range of training options. Tailored and customized, we can deliver your organization’s training needs anytime, anywhere.
Why Choose this Training Course?
This Petrographic and Reservoir Quality Analysis of Siliciclastic and Carbonate Reservoirs training course focuses on some of the most important challenges facing the exploration of oil/gas reservoirs, that’s the types of controls on reservoir quality of siliciclastic and carbonate reservoirs.
Innovative petrographic analyses will permit to:
Improve the knowledge of petrographic & diagenetic markers for reservoir quality assessment of exploration targets
Understand the differences between siliciclastic and carbonate rocks in terms of depositional environments, provenance, initial porosity and porosity evolution of reservoir sediments during burial
To help choose the best analytical petrographic analyses on core samples, cuttings and outcrop rocks to optimize the completion of geological projects for a certain exploration play
What are the Goals?
By attending this Petrographic and Reservoir Quality Analysis of Siliciclastic and Carbonate Reservoirs training course, you will learn to:
Understand the Petrographic techniques for the study of sedimentary rocks
Distinguish between Siliciclastic & Carbonate sediments in terms of main controls on reservoir quality
Identify the potential Petrographic/Diagenetic markers for Paleo-Environmental and Diagenetic Reconstructions
Implement innovative analytical programs for ongoing or future geological projects
Correlate sedimentary sequences by means of Petrographic results
Build a multi-well Petrographic/reservoir quality model for regional exploration projects
Who is this Training Course for?
This Petrographic and Reservoir Quality Analysis of Siliciclastic and Carbonate Reservoirs training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:
Sedimentary geologists of service and oil companies
Junior to mid-level geologists carrying out rock-based geological projects
Sedimentologists who need to be conversant on reservoir quality concepts
Petrographers of small and large oil-industry organizations
PhD students in sedimentary geology of academic institutions
Introduction to Siliciclastic and Carbonate Reservoirs with emphasis on controls on reservoir quality
