Who should attend

This course is intended for all experienced geologists, geophysicists, petrophysicists, reservoir engineers involved in carbonate reservoir characterization.

About the course

This five-day course handled by ICTD expert instructor is To deepen understanding of ways and means for describing carbonates from cores/outcrop analogues, logs, and seismics; and, ultimately, integrating data efficiently for reservoir characterization and static modeling. Several practical exercises and small group work with core photos, thin section photos, log data, Phi/K data, seismic data will be demonstrated.  

Course Objectives

  Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:

  • To assess steps followed to characterize carbonate reservoirs and build a static geological and petrophysical model
  • To appreciate the contribution of carbonate sedimentology and sequence stratigraphy to the model
  • To assess the significant impact of carbonate diagenesis on pore-space
  • To understand the complexity of carbonates’ Phi-K properties and link geological observations and petrophysics
  • To review about rock-typing processes integrating sedimentology and petrophysics data
  • To develop skills in building efficient workflows for carbonates reservoir characterization
