Carbonate Geology for Oil and Gas Exploration & Development

Carbonate Geology for Oil & Gas Exploration & Development - Upstream / E & P training courseCarbonate Geology applied to Conventional and Unconventional Plays - A 5-day Intermediate Training Course in Vienna

This course introduces participants to established principles of carbonate geology as they apply to the search for conventional or unconventional carbonate plays, and their subsequent development.

A highly acclaimed, hands-on approach is used throughout.

For this course:

  • We use a great teaching format (lectures reinforced with exercises)
  • The notebook contains color images of all slides presented in lectures
  • Exercises are keyed to identical sample rock sets, each containing 56 representative subsurface and outcrop samples from around the world

Suitability - Who should attend?

This Carbonate Geology training course has been specifically designed for geologists, geophysicists, reservoir engineers, log analysts and managers.

You will benefit greatly from this course even if you have little or no industry carbonate background.


It is also a great refresher course if you have not worked with carbonates for a while. More experienced participants will be introduced to new concepts just recently published.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

By the end of the course you will feel confident to:

  • Describe typical carbonate rocks
  • Interpret facies relationships and sequences
  • Understand the key controls on depositional facies occurrence and distribution, based on stratigraphic age and physiographic setting
  • Evaluate reservoir quality in limestones and dolostones
  • Understand reservoir complexity related to carbonate diagenesis
  • Relate carbonates to well logs and seismic expression
  • Evaluate the different approaches to doing carbonate sequence stratigraphy and exploiting reservoir complexity
  • Better predict play relationships in the subsurface. Learn the key factors that control carbonate play types and their geometries in the subsurface
  • Construct a time-stratigraphic facies framework, essential for both accurate regional correlation of carbonate sequences and zonation of carbonate reservoirs

Training Course Content

The Carbonate Geology for Oil and Gas Exploration & Development course is designed to cover the following topics:

  • Distinctive aspects of carbonates; non-skeletal grains; skeletal grains
  • Carbonate classifications and sedimentary structures; limestone diagenesis and porosity evolution
  • Dolomitisation and porosity evolution; pore types and porosity classification schemes; attributes of shallow and deep-marine facies; depositional facies models for platforms; depositional facies model for a ramp
  • Carbonate sequence stratigraphy relationships and approaches; well log and seismic expression of carbonates; carbonate source rocks; carbonates and evaporites; carbonate play types and review of worldwide case studies tied to stratigraphic age and physiographic setting
  • Use of depositional cyclicity to zone carbonate reservoirs (detailed review of two case studies); carbonate facies correlation exercise

Expenses

The course fee includes tuition, course material, refreshments and lunch per session day and a 100 EURO non-refundable registration fee. Course fees do NOT include accommodation or living costs. Applicable taxes will be added. 

The course is held at a top quality hotel with excellent meeting facilities.

I liked the intensity of the course. It really helped to drive the mind to carbonate geology from another area, like geophysics.
