21 February, 2013
Who Should Attend
Anyone needing to know more about carbonates and how to improve exploration in carbonate reservoirs.
Objectives
Course Content

The overall objective of this E-symposium is to review the petrophysics of carbonates, including the “new carbonates” in resource plays. The course will review core data, petrophysical comparisons, rock physics modeling (including pseudo logs and mechanical properties). Topics covered will include:

Basic Petrophysics:

  • What do we need to know about carbonates?
  • What makes carbonates different?
  • Porosity Logs
  • Resistivity Logs
  • Gamma Ray
  • SP

 

Lithology of carbonates and well logs:

  • Calcium carbonate
  • Dolomitic carbonates
  • Clay minerals in carbonates
  • Cherty carbonates

Carbonate textures and well logs / petrophysics:

  • Examples
  • Significance

Interpretations – The Basics with a focus on carbonates

  • Shale calculations
  • Porosity calculations
  • Resistivity/Porosity cross plots to solve Archie’s equation
  • Influence of clays
  • Saturation determination
  • Permeability estimates

Cores vs. well logs

  • Examples
  • Issues

Petrophysics of Carbonates as they relate to seismic

  • Examples
  • Key issues

Carbonate Petrophysics and Reservoir Characterization

  • Basic concepts and issues

Structure of the E-Symposium

Each e-symposium consists of one-hour live e-symposium, along with material for one full day of independent study. The live portion will be followed by a full day of independent study (not a live event). The one-hour live e-symposium can be accessed from any computer anywhere in the world using a high-speed internet connection. After the event is over, you will receive via email information about accessing the asynchronous segment (not live) which consists of your independent study materials, to be accessed and studied at any time. You will be able to email responses to the readings, along with your study question answers for CEU credit (if you sign up for the extended package).

Recording of original webinar, packet of independent study reading materials, PDF of original PowerPoint presentation by FTP download. (Original presentation date: February 21, 2013.) Some materials will also sent by e-mail.
