The class uses modern analogues, outcrops, and existing fields to examine the depositional elements and processes
that control the distribution of reservoir facies within each of the various clastic depositional systems. With this
understanding of how and where the reservoir facies are deposited, interpreters can defie the reservoir architecture
of a play, prospect, or fild and make relatively accurate estimations of the hydrocarbon resources and reserves contained in those reservoirs.
Who Should Attend
E&P professionals involved in the exploration and exploitation of clastic reservoirs. The course will be particularly useful for professionals early in their career and experienced professionals new to working with clastic reservoirs.
Key Learning Objectives
- Understand the fundamentals of reserve assessment and reporting.
- Understand the basics of correlating well logs in clastic sequences utilizing shale and resistivity markers, interval thickness, sequence stacking patterns and cross sections.
- Review the fundamental controls that influence clastic depositional systems
- Understanding of the lateral and vertical reservoir distribution, reservoir characteristics and connectivity of
braided, meandering, anastomosing, and entrenched river systems.
- Understanding of the lateral and vertical reservoir distribution, reservoir characteristics and connectivity of alluvial fans, deltas, and submarine fan systems
- Improved ability to construct accurate sand percent maps for reservoir prediction, and net sand and net pay isochore maps for accurate reservoir characterization and reserve assessment.
- Learn how to read a core and interpret the depositional environment
