New Orleans, Louisiana, United States
4-5 February 2015

The goal of the workshop is to improve understanding of carbonate play types around the world, and to optimize efforts by using analogues for poorly understood discoveries, and challenging reservoirs where characterization may be complex. Studies will include microbialites in Brazil, carbonate-dominated unconventionals, and diagenetically altered reservoirs, along with other case studies and research.
