Complex Carbonate Reservoirs: Sedimentation and Tectonic Processes - The Impact of Facies and Fractures on Reservoir Performance

26 September - 2 October 2015

Sponsored By:

This seminar will be like following the trajectory of a well drilled through the thrust belt to target a fractured carbonate reservoir. At the beginning, we will focus on the Allochthonous thrust sheets of the fold and thrust belt, in order to understand the regional geological and structural framework. We will then reach and observe the reservoir represented by the Cretaceous Apulian Platform Carbonates, which are currently being produced in the sub-surface of Southern Italy. The main part of the field seminar will focus on the description of the fractured carbonates and the extrapolation from the outcrop observations to the subsurface for building geologically plausible reservoir models.

The main advantage of using the example of the Southern Apennines is that we can run through the drilling trajectory of the hypothetical well, not only vertically (using subsurface data) but also horizontally by moving from west coast outcrops (Naples area) to the east coast outcrops (Apulia area). The final part of the field seminar, will be spent studying an exhumed anticline (in the Abruzzi region) where there are extensive outcrops of Apulian Carbonates equivalent to some of the major oil reservoirs exploited in Italy.
