Geology of Clastic Reservoirs

This course offers an in-depth analysis of the distributions, geometries and sedimentary architectures of clastic reservoir facies. Participants will learn the criteria for distinguishing reservoir facies using wireline log and core data, how to interpret facies distributions at regional and field scales, and how to integrate this information into exploration and development projects. Reservoir geometry, continuity and effects on diagenesis on clastic reservoir quality will be tackled.

The course emphasis is on fluvio-deltaic facies, with coverage of alluvial fan, fluvial, eolian, shoreface, deltaic, shelf and deep-water environments. Lectures cover the basics; supporting details of sedimentary facies characteristic, geometry, depositional sequences and oil distribution are drawn from numerous studies worldwide Exercises utilizing log and core data provide an opportunity for participants to practice the methodologies addressed in the course.
