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:

  • Why sedimentological work is vital even to RE
  • Planning for all team to work together on reservoir characteristics
  • Linking different reservoir characteristics (Clastics and carbonate) to possible HC production
  • Merging petrography, petrophysics to depositional setting and reservoir behavior
  • Geological architecture and associated displacement and diagenesis processes
  • HC recovery estimates ,field development planning and uncertainty management
  • Applied fluid flow equations Vs reservoir characterization

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

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

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

Organisational Impact

The organization will have a well-trained geoscientist who can Integrate well logs with core data for a better enhancement of reservoir performance and connectivity.

The unknown reasons for limited production and uncertainty in volumetric calculations will be highlighted so the organization would have a clear vision about where to drill the next wells and accurate volume estimation.

Personal Impact

Upon completion of this PetroKnowledge training course, participants will be able to integrate core data results with well log analysis, calibrate it and weigh all petrophysical analysis by accurate measurements.

Also, participants will be familiar with challenges in each depositional environment which will help them to accurately construct reservoir static models and integrate results with reservoir engineering.
