The overall objective of this E-symposium is to review the petrophysics of carbonates, including the “new carbonates” in resource plays. The course will review core data, petrophysical comparisons, rock physics modeling (including pseudo logs and mechanical properties). Topics covered will include:
What do we need to know about carbonates?
What makes carbonates different?
Lithology of carbonates and well logs:
Clay minerals in carbonates
Carbonate textures and well logs / petrophysics:
Interpretations – The Basics with a focus on carbonates
Resistivity/Porosity cross plots to solve Archie’s equation
Influence of clays
Cores vs. well logs
Petrophysics of Carbonates as they relate to seismic
Carbonate Petrophysics and Reservoir Characterization
Basic concepts and issues
Who Should Attend
Anyone needing to know more about carbonates and how to improve exploration in carbonate reservoirs.
46 minutes of video lectures
Since its founding in 1917, the American Association of Petroleum Geologists has been a pillar of the worldwide scientific community. The original purpose of AAPG, to foster scientific research, to advance the science of geology, to promote technology, and to inspire high professional conduct, still guides the Association today.
AAPG provides publications, conferences, and educational opportunities to geoscientists and disseminates the most current geological information available to the general public.
As the world's premier professional association for explorationists, AAPG is about the science of petroleum geology.
It's also about the people.
AAPG's membership is made up of more than 40,000 members in 129 countries in the upstream energy industry who collaborate – and compete – to provide the means for humankind to thrive.
AAPG provides the network of communications that allow those professionals to succeed.
We invite you to see who we are, what we are about and to contact us for membership information or details about the many services we provide.
