Registration fee includes refreshments, lunch, workshop notebook & PDH certificate (8 credit hours). Course DescriptionThis is a course covering what someone who is involved with managing and producing oil and gas fields should know about geology. The environment of deposition impacts the size and shape of a reservoir, where the better quality reservoir rock is located, the origin and complexity of barriers to flow, what influences the variations to porosity, permeability, and irreducible water saturation, and the pore system that affects recovery factor. In a coastal marine environment, principles of sequence stratigraphy that control sand deposition at the shoreline, on the shelf, or in deep water will be described. In carbonate depositional system, the locations of better quality reservoir rock will be described in relation to a reef environment. Computer animations of sequence stratigraphy will be available to each participant.
