Introduction To Karst Reservoirs Modeling Field Course
Karst Reservoirs in Navarra & Rioja
Course Type Field Course
Duration 3 days
This 3-day introductory course presents karst reservoirs and complex karsts reservoirs, the use of analogs (outcrops and hydrocarbon fields) and describes the modeling principles and parameters to be used.
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, 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.
