In reserve estimation, one thing is more proven than probable: The numbers can be open to interpretation. That point, which was made frequently at the Multidisciplinary Reserves Conference, held in late June in Washington, D.C., co-sponsored by AAPG and SPE, has certainly gotten the attention of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

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.
