About this Micro Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)
Carbonate reservoirs are very different from clastic reservoirs and are mineralogically unstable. Post depositional alteration is common and it greatly influences petrophysical character. This Micro VILT is designed to refresh the participants’ skills in recognizing and understanding the diagenetic and petrophysical characteristics of carbonate reservoirs.
The Micro VILT will examine post-depositional changes, the creation and destruction of porosity, including natural fractures and effects on petrophysical character, especially wettability, capillary pressure and saturation.
Examples from across the world will be used during the training, but particular reference will be made to reservoir formations in the Arabian Gulf.

Your expert course leader is the Geosciences Technical Director for PetroEdge. She was previously, the manager of Robertson Petroleum Training Centre and a Senior Project Scientist at CGG.
She has over 25 years of experience in teaching geology and leading field trips. Prior to her 8 years at Robertson CGG, she was in academia as a lecturer for 6 years and a Research Fellow for 3 years. She has conducted fieldwork and led field trips in the US and many areas in the UK. In addition, she has led university regional geology day schools and has comprehensive experience in course and study programme writing.
She has extensive experience in delivering courses and in Seismic Interpretation and Mapping, Clastic and Carbonate Reservoir Geology, Deepwater Turbidites, Sandstone Reservoirs, Wireline Log Interpretation, Integrated Sequence Stratigraphy, Basin Analysis and Exploration & Appraisal workshops globally.
In delivering the Exploration Team Management Workshop, she has project managed and taught key principles and modules on project planning, data collection/collation, geophysical assessment, stratigraphy and facies mapping, source rock facies and hydrocarbon generation, play fairway mapping, risking and prospect evaluation.
Her knowledge and enthusiasm for instructing is reflected in consistently being rated as excellent by trainees, and clients specifically requesting her participation in courses.
