DR. RICK SARG COURSE HAS BEEN POSTPONED


August 10th, 2021 8:00 AM - August 11th, 2021 - 5:00 PM

DR. RICK SARG

COLORADO SCHOOL OF MINES

 

"Integrated Carbonate Reservoir Prediction – Conventional & Unconventional Exploration & Production"

 

August 10-11, 2021

Oklahoma City, OK

 

Who Should Attend: All geoscientists who want to understand carbonate systems in both conventional and unconventional settings.

 

Objectives: The course will cover the following topics:

 

  • Introduction to carbonate facies, depositional architecture (with attention on ramps), and carbonate sequences
  • Introduction to carbonate diagenesis with attention to karst processes, and chertification
  • Integrated reservoir prediction
  • Introduction to unconventional carbonate reservoirs

 

Description:

 

This two-day workshop provides a review of the application of carbonate facies, diagenesis, and seismic sequence stratigraphy to exploration and production. This includes conventional and unconventional carbonate reservoirs. The workshop combines seismic, well log and rock data, to develop interpretations that help predict carbonate hydrocarbon systems, and characterize conventional and unconventional carbonate reservoirs and seals. At the completion of this workshop, participants will be able to integrate carbonate concepts to their work in both conventional and unconventional plays. The workshop covers (1) a review of the different carbonate depositional systems; (2) a review of carbonate facies architecture, sequence stratigraphy and seismic facies; (3) an introduction to carbonate diagenesis, including karstification and chertification, and its effects on reservoir quality, including karst processes; and (4) facies and porosity characteristics of unconventional carbonate reservoirs in a variety of settings. Exercises will illustrate these topics and include integrated seismic-well log-rock examples.

 

The workshop is designed for geologists and geophysicists who are exploring for and developing oil and gas fields in carbonate systems.  Some experience with carbonate rocks is helpful.  Particularly appropriate for those desiring to integrate seismic, well logs and core data to develop predictive models for carbonate systems, including unconventional resource plays.
