This two days course introduces carbonate reservoir, and gives basic insights into reservoir rock typing and outcrop overview; it also includes training exercises combining actual field data (logs, cores, production data, etc.).
This course is designed to familiarize geoscientists, as well as reservoir engineers, with karst systems and reservoirs, with insights into static and dynamic modeling applied to karst reservoirs.
The course alternates lectures, and exercises in classroom and in the field.

Jean-Louis Cappelli graduated from Ecole Nationale Supérieure du Pétrole et des Moteurs.
He is a technical consultant and instructor in carbonate geology with more than 40 years of worldwide industry and field experience in all aspects of applied modern and ancient carbonate geology. His experience comprises 35 years with Elf-Aquitaine and then with TOTAL, where he was a training instructor for in-house seminars and development courses (both, reservoir-oriented and exploration-oriented courses).
