This presentation focuses on heterogeneity caused by lithologic changes in the most prolific reservoir interval in the world, the Arab-D, and highlights the impact of dolomitization on reservoir performance.

This study presents a new approach to pre-drill reservoir quality prediction that involves the integration of a variety of modelling techniques to understand, quantify and predict the geological processes that control reservoir quality.

Reservoir quality is the main attribute that controls well productivity and field-wide performance. Yet, even though oil companies have invested significantly in techniques to understand and predict reservoir quality, it still remains a significant challenge and source of investment risk for the industry.

Production from self-sourced reservoirs relies on natural and induced fracturing to enhance permeability and produce connected pathways for hydrocarbons to flow back to producing wellbores; thus, natural or induced fracturing is key to the success of unconventional reservoir plays. In addition to enhancing production, large or well-connected fractures or faults may cause undesirable complications for production. 

Natural and induced fractures are influenced by: (i) mechanical stratigraphy, (ii) preexisting natural deformation such as faults, fractures, and folds, and (iii) in situ stress conditions, which includes both natural stresses and stresses modified by stimulation and pressure depletion (Ferrill et al. 2014b). Understanding the occurrence and controls on natural and induced faulting and fracturing in self-sourced reservoirs is a key component for developing effective approaches for exploiting hydrocarbons within self-sourced reservoirs.

The search for unconventional hydrocarbons is not new. It’s true that almost 100 years separated the early exploration successes in the synclinal valleys of Central Pennsylvania, to the exploitation of Coal-Bed Methane in a number of basins in the U.S. and Canada in the 1980’s. Since the 1980's, however, a quiet revolution began which by today has seen several waves of unconventional resources being pursued with economic success. Coal-bed methane was followed by the search for Center-Basin Gas, Shale Gas and most recently, Liquid-rich Shales (some of which aren't shales).

A significant amount of the world's remaining oil is housed in low permeability carbonate mud-rocks. Carbonate reservoir heterogeneity is complex, due to ternary porosity distributions composed of matrix, vugs, and fractures. Recently, matrix related micro-porosity has been recognized as an important control on storage capacity and hydraulic conductivity of hydrocarbons.

The tour will lead participants up the Stanley Glacier trail, through the notorious burn zone of 2003, now a beautiful regrowth area, and up to the Burgess shale outcrop where views of the Stanley Glacier valley are spectacular.

This one day field trip targets recent earth sciences graduates and working Young Professionals from all over the world to meet and bond with fellow peers in the beautiful setting of Stanley Glacier and Marble Canyon in Kootenay National Park. Please note this is not a student field trip.

This two-day workshop provides an introduction to the application of carbonate facies, diagenesis, and seismic sequence stratigraphy to exploration and production. This includes marine and lacustrine systems, and conventional and unconventional carbonate reservoirs. The workshop combines seismic, well log and rock data, and the concepts of sequence stratigraphy to develop interpretations that help predict carbonate hydrocarbon systems, and characterize carbonate reservoirs and seals. At the completion of this workshop, participants will be able to integrate carbonate and sequence stratigraphy principles to their work.

This trip is designed to examine the components of one of these unconventional systems, the Bakken-equivalent Exshaw and lower Banff of the southern Alberta Rockies. The latest Devonian to earliest Mississippian Exshaw Formation and overlying black shale of the lower Banff Formation provide an opportunity to see a coeval outcrop analogue of the Bakken petroleum system in the Williston Basin.

Take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn all the aspects related to the understanding and modeling of fractured reservoirs. Attendees will take geologic concepts and use them in reservoir modeling through hands-on sessions devoted to the examination of outcrop, core and log data. They will use that information and a software to create 3D fractured reservoir models. Using actual Teapot Dome (Wyoming, USA) field data from the Tensleep and Niobrara Shale formations and a hands-on approach, the workshop allows the geoscientist to identify fractures and to construct predictive 3D fracture models that can be used to identify productive zones, plan wells and to create fracture porosity and permeability models for reservoir simulation.

Participants will learn a specific and comprehensive methodology for finding and developing conventional and unconventional oil and gas resources associated with lake deposits. The seminar will start with the Quaternary Bonneville basin in Utah, to build familiarity with lacustrine depositional processes. Participants then examine world-famous exposures of organic-rich mudstone, fluvial sandstone, and carbonate microbialite facies in Wyoming.
