Evaluation of Volcanic Reservoirs

Evaluation of Volcanic Reservoirs

The Evaluation of Volcanic Reservoirs course describes the most common geologic characteristics of volcanic reservoirs and the tools and exploration workflow needed in the evaluation of this play system. It offers intermediate knowledge about volcanic rocks and reservoirs, physical properties, petrology, pore and fracture systems, and geometry of different volcanic and volcano-sedimentary systems.

During this course, paper-based exercises on integrated seismic and well logs datasets will be prepared to simulate an exploration workflow on a volcanic reservoir of the Pacific.

The main objectives of this course are:

  • To explain the common techniques to investigate and evaluate the reservoir characteristics
  • To analyse geophysical log dataset, in order to characterise the internal architecture of a volcanic reservoir
  • To predict the reservoir distribution in order to produce an integrated geological model and to decrease the risks

Suitability - Who should attend?

This course is designed for you, if you are a:

  • Reservoir engineer or geologist wishing to discover the workflow and the common tools to evaluate a volcanic reservoir.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be confident in their understanding of:

  • Typical properties and characteristics of the volcanic reservoir
  • Distribution and properties of fractures and pore systems
  • Lithological identification and prediction
  • Effective reservoir identification
  • Interpretation of seismic
  • Well techniques
  • Exploration workflow on a volcanic reservoir
