This one day course introduces carbonate reservoirs, with basic insights into reservoir rock typing and with training exercises using real field data (logs, cores, production data, etc.).
This course is designed to develop skills in understanding the complex inter-relationship of the depositional and burial history of carbonates, with insights on geometry and petrophysical characteristics of the carbonate reservoirs.
The course alternates lectures, and a case study: Senonian reservoir from Lacq sup. (France), presentation and training exercise. Application to production and development: where to drill a new development well for sustaining production?
There is no specific requirement for this course. It should be organised in any meeting room with validated HSE characteristics, in your company premises, or elsewhere.
Carbonate Reservoirs Topics Overview
Exploration, reservoir identification/evaluation
Reservoir identification from seismic

This course is designed for Exploration and development geologists, exploration and development managers, and geophysicists as well as engineers.
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).
