2- Carbonate Essentials: Pores to Prospect



Este curso proporciona un vistazo general a los carbonatos, desde la geología hasta la interpretación sísmica, con especial énfasis en la topografía kárstica y expresión sísmica de los mismos. Los yacimientos de carbonatos representan más del 60% de las reservas de petróleo en todo el mundo, incluyendo los depósitos no convencionales emergentes. A diferencia de las rocas clásticas, la mineralogía de carbonatos es relativamente simple, mientras que aumenta la complejidad en relación con la variabilidad lateral del ambiente deposicional, estructura de poros, diagénesis y disolución.

Course Description

This course is an overview of carbonates from geology to seismic interpretation, with particular emphasis on karst topography and seismic expression thereof. Carbonate reservoirs represent over 60% of worldwide petroleum reserves, including emerging unconventional reservoirs. Unlike clastics, carbonate mineralogy is relatively simple, while complexity arises from depositional environment lateral variability, pore structure, digenesis and dissolution. These factors influence bulk rock properties and, in turn, seismic response. The course offers a broad overview of carbonate geology and properties that are mappable on a seismic scale as potential hydrocarbon reservoirs. To illustrate key concepts, field sites and case histories are presented from global locations.

 

Course Objective(s)

Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to understand;

  • Carbonate geological classification, pore structures and nature of karst terrain;
  • Relationship of seismic parameters to carbonate rock properties;
  • Use of full wave and dipole sonic to map fractures and classify in Vp/Vs-Impedance space;
  • Basic concepts of 3D seismic such as resolution and meaning of seismic amplitude;
  • Carbonate horizon mapping with 3D seismic data in faulted and unfaulted terrain;
  • Nature of carbonate lithology bright spots and geobody extraction;
  • Parameterization and use of fundamental 3D seismic attributes in carbonate settings.
