Geology of Reservoirs: from Basin to Pores
Course Summary: A strong understanding of reservoir geology is key to maximising production from all oil and gas fields. In this current price environment, with exploration budgets slashed, it is important for companies to make sure they are getting the best possible return from their existing fields. This course has been designed to teach an in-depth understanding of reservoir geology, focusing on both the basin-scale geological features right down to the pore-scale geology and their effects on the reservoir. With focuses on predicting reservoir architecture from the sedimentology, reservoir characterisation and volumetric calculations and uncertainties
Who Should Take the Course: The course is devised for geoscientists and reservoir engineers of all levels of experience who wish to enhance their knowledge of reservoir geology.
Basin Scale Considerations
- Structural influence on depositional systems
- Interpreting gross depositional environments
- Integrated seismo-sequence stratigraphic interpretation
- Prediction of reservoir size, shape, trend, quality
- Analysis of clastic & carbonate depositional systems
- Sedimentary controls on porosity, permeability, saturation
- Interpret clastic depositional environments using log data data
- Carbonates - Diagenesis, porosity evolution, and porosity distribution at the time of burial
- Integrated geological reservoir modelling
- Understanding production geology
