The course will give students the skills to interpret petrophysically complex reservoirs from a variety of sedimentological and lithological environments. Integration with geology will be emphasised along with the advanced tools and techniques necessary to characterise these very different reservoir types. By the end of this course, students will understand: how the sedimentary environment impacts reservoir properties; how those properties may be evaluated; the logging tool suites available to interpret complex reservoirs; key differences between matrix and fracture based production systems; impact of clay type and distribution on clastic reservoir quality; and the potential volumes available from unconventional reservoirs.
