The AAPG course on “Concepts, Models and Case Studies of Dolomitization” summarizes the major advances and current controversies in dolomite research, and would be great for petroleum geologists who work in any type of carbonate hydrocarbon reservoir, especially those in working in dolomitized reservoirs. Material will be presented through a combination of lectures, case studies and class exercises. This course is part of AAPG’s upcoming Fundamentals Education Conference, taking place November 9-13, in Houston, TX.
Do you know what creates dolomite in various geologic settings? Do you know how, and how MUCH porosity and permeability can change via Dolomitization? If you’d like to learn the answers to these and many other questions, plan to attend the short course on “Concepts, Models and Case Studies of Dolomitization, with Applications to Hydrocarbon Exploration and Development”, November 9-10, in Houston. A major part of this course deals with the various dolomitization models, from early to late and from shallow to deep, from hypersaline reflux to hydrothermal dolomitization and MVT mineralization. These concepts will be applied to hydrocarbon exploration and development.
Topics covered will include:
- Geochemical Constraints on Dolomitization
- Natural Environments and Models
- Geochemical Methods
- Case Studies
- And much more…
This course is taught by Hans Machel from the University of Alberta in Edmonton and Jay Gregg who is from Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, OK. Dr. Machel's fields of research and expertise are mainly in carbonate diagenesis with applications to petroleum reservoirs. Dr. Gregg’s professional expertise is in the fields of sedimentary petrology and geochemistry.
