Although tools and concepts for sequence stratigraphic analysis are well-established, many questions on continuity and geometry of facies bodies, and applications (e.g., geologic modeling) require insight at a subsequence scale, perspectives that can be gained from developing and utilizing fundamental concepts of carbonate sedimentologic and geomorphic principles to explore potential depositional variability in reservoir analogs at the facies scale.
In many carbonate reservoirs, the depositional and facies patterns strongly influence reservoir geometry and continuity. This program will enable you understand the key competencies in carbonate sedimentology which will be key to enhanced interpretation of reservoir systems.
Developing foundational competencies in carbonate sedimentology will be developed through understanding and applying cutting-edge research that explored sedimentologic (e.g., depositional porosity and permeability) and geomorphologic (e.g., depositional reservoir body) heterogeneities and early diagenesis of reservoir analogues.
