Carbonate Reservoirs: Kuala Lumpur | Menara Atlan | Monday, 06. July 2020

Course overview
The course provides a detailed look at carbonate rocks and the sediments that make up these rocks, and examines concepts and models of diagenetic changes in carbonates.
The course is designed for:
Individuals in sedimentary geology and petroleum geology who are currently involved in development or exploration of carbonate reservoirs e.g. geologists, geophysicists, drilling engineers, reservoir engineers
Learning objectives

Recognition of the main sedimentary structures and processes and ability to relate them to the original depositional environment
Ability to recognize, from the available data of outcrops and well logs, the depositional architectures and to reconstruct the depositional scenarios in time and space
Ability to reconstruct and correlate at small and large scale the sedimentary sequences
Ability to extrapolate from the available data of outcrops (surficial analogous) the subsurface geology
To link the acquired knowledge to exploration petroleum geology
