An Introductory Course
This 5-day course combines outcrops review with in-class exercises, use of analogs and actual field cases. This course introduces participants to the principles of carbonate sedimentology applied to hydrocarbon exploration and development geology.
To understand carbonate deposition systems and controls.
To recognize and model controls on reservoir quality and pore systems, including diagenesis and fracturing.
To understand and apply carbonate seismic stratigraphy and sequence stratigraphy.
The course alternates lectures, and exercises in classroom and in the field.
Each participant is required to provide a yearly medical certificate before attending this field course. Participants must be in good health and physical conditions to attend.
Depending on the course location and the objectives of the host company: outcrops from Spitsbergen to the Bahamas.
This basic to intermediate course is designed to develop skills in understanding the geometry and petrophysical characteristics of carbonate reservoirs. It is mostly aimed at exploration and development geologists, exploration and development managers. Geophysicists and engineers having some geologic background will also benefit from this course.
