Reservoir Quality Analysis of Sandstone & Carbonate Rock-Types

Geology, Seismology & Petrophysics
Quality Management


This PetroDeep training course is aimed at giving oil industry geologists a detailed introduction to the study of sandstone and carbonate rock-types in terms of reservoir quality. Reservoir quality analysis permits to identify the main depositional, provenance and diagenetic controls on the evolution of the poro-perm characteristics of sandstone and carbonate reservoirs (e.g. evolution of porosity vs. burial depth, mineralogical content and diagenetic environments). Examples from sandstone and carbonate oil/gas reservoirs (i.e. current East & West Africa basins) are also taken into consideration. This training course will highlight: • Introduction to siliciclastic and carbonate reservoirs with emphasis on controls on reservoir quality • Sandstone composition, provenance, diagenesis and tectonic settings • Carbonate composition (allochems, orthochems), classification and diagenesis • Petrographic analyses (TS, SEM, CL), XRD, QEMSCAN and integration of reservoir quality results • Porosity classification, porosity evolution vs. burial depth, stratigraphy, composition, authigenic components and diagenetic phases/environments • Concept of Rock Typing, Rock Typing schemes and Rock Typing analysis of uncored reservoir intervals (sandstone and carbonate cuttings tied to wireline logs)
