Petroleum Systems in Conventional and Unconventional E&P
May 15 - May 18
Why Choose this Training Course
This petroleum systems training will arm geologists and engineers with advanced capabilities to: identify, map and evaluate new plays; identify storage and production sweet spots in plays; identify vertical/by-passed storage and production sweet spots to optimize landing zones in new and existing plays.
The petroleum systems training course teaches how to use regional geology, geochemistry and petroleum systems modeling in evaluating unconventional/resource play reservoirs. The processes discussed range from deposition of the organic-rich rock; generation, expulsion, migration and accumulation processes leading to saturation of the reservoir; to the prediction of reservoir and produced fluid properties and values.
Who Should Attend
- Geoscientists working on deepwater sediments, whether in exploration, appraisal, development or production.
Key Learning Objectives
- Understand modern approaches to categorizing source rocks: their potential and distribution.
- Establish the link between organic matter and petroleum: the organofacies scheme and the geochemistry and composi-tion of oil & gas
- Identify how the thermics of sedimentary basins and kinetics/organic matter quality control expelled petroleum volumes and compositions.
- Understand the effects of pressure and capillarity: petroleum migration and accumulation are flip-sides of the same process, controlling reservoir saturation patterns.
- Differentiate between potentially producible fluid vs. immobile sorbed petroleum in organic-rich reservoirs.
- Employ sweet-spot mapping of well performance from a pressure and fluid perspective, and fluid prediction using advanced pyrolysis methods in well samples.
