Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Training Course?

Participants of this 5-day Sedimentology from Introduction to Application training course are those who are familiar with exploration and geology and needs a new depth to their interpretation by knowing the sedimentary setting from data and tools in hand, work on mapping/correlations, understand the different litho-facies with picking detailed zonation from cores and logs in order to prepare for modeling. Knowing the environment of deposition and related sedimentary structures are vital for the sake of evaluating basins and trace the possible involved depositional model.

This will have a direct impact on studying reasons of well failure critique and/or delineated more success pay stories. A direct outcome of the course is to ensure maximizing usage of acquired data after drilling for exploration, appraisal and development success. By choosing this PetroKnowledge training course for the company exploration and development team, we are closing the gap between interpretation geologists, petrophysicists, well site geologist, geophysicists, and reservoir engineers.

This training course will highlight:

  • Sedimentary environment of deposition
  • Rock units and sedimentary structures
  • Form core to log and vice versa
  • All possible involved facies
  • From sedimentary to Static modeling

What are the Goals?

What are the Goals?

The main goals of this PetroKnowledge training course are to stimulate the participants with knowledge of the sedimentology and its importance in the oil industry, understand and apply this knowledge to evaluate related environment of deposition, rock unit description (from texture and diagenesis to facies), analyze and evaluate the zonation from both core to log and vice versa to create model that fit, as best as we can, geological, geophysical and petrophysical setting versus reservoir and production performance.

By the end of this training course, participants will learn to:

  • Develop possible sedimentary analysis of the data in hand
  • Understand the sedimentary depth to the work done
  • Build an estimated environment/facies scheme to the working area
  • Analyze the sedimentary structure impact onto exploration
  • Apply related sedimentary deposition and facies to build /create the model 

Who is this Training Course for?

Who is this Training Course for?

This training course is suitable for a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit the following:

  • Petrophysicists
  • Geophysicists
  • Geo-modelers
  • Reservoir Engineers
  • Exploration or Development Teams

How will this Training Course be Presented?

How will this Training Course be Presented?

The instructor will not only show and interpret the training course material in detail but will trigger knowledge form the attendees themselves so once discussed, will never be forgotten, a live incrementing point system will be running with all discussions and quizzes during the course path, add to that several videos will be shown and discussed.
