Why You Should Attend

If you are interested in carbonates as hydrocarbon reservoirs or hosts for minerals, there is no other source that will teach you a systematic step-by-step methodology using an approach that has been tested repeatedly and proven to be successful. Whether you are an early-career geoscientist looking for an introduction or a seasoned professional wanting to catch-up to the latest developments in carbonate reservoir characterization, this is the course for you.

Course Content

This short-course covers a systematic step-by-step methodology for approaching carbonate reservoirs. It commences with the identification of carbonate platform type in seismic data, discuss reservoir distribution through a virtual tour of modern reefs in Bali and proximal ramp deposits in Kuwait and Abu Dhabi. After covering carbonate platforms, the course will discuss carbonate factories, cyclicity, and the relationship between mechanical stratigraphy, diagenesis and bioturbation.

This short course was initially developed for the engineering department at the Colorado School of Mines three years ago and has now become an annual tradition due to its popularity. You will get to see fantastic examples that have real-world sub-surface applications using data that is not available in the public domain.

This course covers a unique step-by-step methodology covering the most important factors to consider when tackling conventional or unconventional carbonate plays. After each step, participants will get to work on real subsurface data from basins across the globe. Consider this course as the "top 10 things an oil finder must know about carbonates".
