This course introduces petroleum engineers to the vocabulary, tools and methods used by geoscientists to explore for, evaluate and develop hydrocarbon reservoirs. Topics include depositional setting (clastic and carbonate reservoirs), trap development, the type of oil and gas charge and reservoir heterogeneity. Reservoir characterization is covered to describe how geology is used to build a high-resolution geological model that can be upscaled for reservoir simulation.
Duration and Training Method
A five-day classroom course comprised of lectures supported by mapping and seismic exercises. Participants work in groups on some exercises.
