Thursday, 30 September – Friday, 1 October 2021, 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.

Natural fractures may be conductive in conventional reservoirs or may become conductive after hydraulic stimulation in unconventional reservoirs. This course addresses these concepts by examining datasets from both conventional and unconventional systems and presenting workflows to construct naturally-fractured reservoir models.

VG Abstract

This lecture will discuss the differences between carbonates and siliciclastics from their chemical composition through their distributions in time and space. Building on these fundamental differences, we will explore the challenges carbonates pose to petroleum geologists in terms of seismic interpretation, reservoir quality prediction, field development, etc. Peppered with humorous personal stories, still raging academic debates, and the heartfelt frustrations of real industry professionals, the aim is to inspire students and young professionals to rise to the occasion and embrace the reservoir rocks that petroleum geologists love to hate.
