Course description

This course is essential for geoscientists and engineers involved in the exploration and development of clastic reservoirs. It focuses on methods that can be used to improve the prediction of reservoir size, shape, trend, and quality through detailed analysis of depositional environments. The sedimentary characteristics of each of the principal clastic depositional systems are presented in detail, using examples from recent environments, outcrops, cores, wireline logs, and test/production data from oil and gas fields in various parts of the world (United States, North Sea/Atlantic, Africa, Middle East, Far East, etc.). Practical exercises are taken from each of the principal depositional settings and involve detailed mapping, interpretation of core and log characteristics, and integration of data from FMI logs. Emphasis is placed on the application of fundamental sedimentary principles (modern, ancient, and subsurface) to actual subsurface data so that the participants can immediately use the information in their exploration and development activities.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Geologists, geophysicists, petrophysicists, reservoir and production engineers, exploration-production managers, all team members involved in reservoir characterization, and technicians working with clastic reservoirs. The course provides a refresher in new concepts in this field for geoscientists at a foundation level.

Development Geologist
Enjoyed exercises because they give you a practical application to the theory learned in lectures. Important because they show how to integrate well data, FMI logs and core data to get full picture/best interpretation.
Staff Geologist
I liked the practical application of log signatures and the potential EOD implications of these signatures. Very applicable to my every day work.
Staff Geophysicist
Comprehensive and covers all aspects of Sandstone Reservoirs.
