Event Details

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
