Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Training Course? 

This high-level PetroKnowledge training course focuses on some of the most important challenges facing the exploration of oil & gas reservoirs, that’s the prediction of poro-perm characteristics of siliciclastic and carbonate rock-types in uncored reservoir intervals.

This training course will provide:

Innovative rock typing analytical tools to:

  • Understand the relationship between physical characteristics of reservoir rocks and their petrophysical behaviour
  • Improve the knowledge of rock typing methods of work useful for reservoir quality correlations of exploration targets
  • Correlate Rock typing parameters with stratigraphy, CA data, wireline logs and other geological datasets.

What are the Goals?

What are the Goals? 

Main goals of the course will be:

  • Providing oral and practical sessions for the Rock Typing analysis of siliciclastic and carbonate petro-types
  • Introducing the concepts of Rock Typing Analogue Principle & Rock Typing Cataloguing
  • Discussing the rock typing coded classification schemes
  • Provide trainees with tools for the prediction of the poro-perm
  • Attributes of cuttings sandstone and carbonate rock types

Who is this Training Course for?

Who is this Training Course for? 

This training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit: 

  • Sedimentary geologists of service and oil companies
  • Mid-level to senior geologists carrying out rock-based geological projects
  • Sedimentologists who need to be conversant on rock typing concepts
  • Petrographers of small and large oil-industry organizations

Daily Agenda

  • Definition of Rock typing, Rock Typing Analogue Principle, Rock typing cataloguing, Rock Typing database
  • Rock Typing coded classification schemes for sandstones and carbonate reservoirs, reservoir characterization of uncored reservoirs intervals (drill cuttings)
  • Composition-provenance of siliciclastic sediments diagenetic path/burial, mineralogy and parent lithology, examples of mineralogical data
  • Rock types permeability/porosity and petrophysical features, rock typing of core samples and cuttings from thin section analysis/photos, rock typing vs. CA & other geological data
  • Grain size analysis, geometry of the pore system, diagenesis and rock typing
  • Dolostone textures and porosity, loss of porosity depth for limestone and dolostone rocks, porosity vs. permeability of dolomites, subsurface logs, SEM and rock types, petrophysics by carbonate texture and stratigraphy.


  • On successful completion of this training course, a PetroKnowledge Certificate will be awarded to the delegates
