Carbonate Reservoirs and Seismic Characterization

Details :

This course is designed to cover the basics of carbonate reservoir and more advanced notions of reservoir characterisation. Participants will be introduced to the basic concepts of sedimentology, diagenesis, pore geometry, and sequence stratigraphy and their implications on reservoir characterisation

•Understanding the integration between static and dynamic data in a coherent and consistent manner

•Characterising the reservoir rock types
