Karst Reservoirs in Budapest or Mallorca
Karst conduits distribution
This 5-day comprehensive residential course presents karst processes, identification from seismic to cores, karst and complex karsts reservoirs and their characteristics, the use of analogs (outcrops and hydrocarbon fields) and the modeling principles and parameters to be used.
This course can be organized either in Budapest (Hungary) or Mallorca (Spain). Other locations will be considered upon request.
The course alternates lectures, exercises, and field studies about karst reservoirs identification and characterization.
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.
In Budapest (Hungary, Triassic and Tertiary sediments), the carbonate of the Buda hills displays quarries and caves presenting karst processes, extension and network at different scales. Outcrops are within or very close to the city.
The SW of Mallorca island (Spain – Tertiary sediments) exhibits meteoric and island karst with different interactions of the processes. Abundant coring allows a review of the processes at depth.
These two locations have been extensively studied and documented and allow a review of karst processes as well as karst reservoir characteristics at different scales.
Other locations will be considered upon request (for example, the Bahamas).
This intermediate to advanced course is designed for exploration and development geoscientists, petrophysicists, reservoir engineers, geostatistical modelers and research/development staff who want to gain fundamental insight into carbonate karstic reservoir characterization through an integrated geological and petrophysical approach.
