Petroleum Geosciences > Micro Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) - Carbonate Reservoirs: Considerations of Wettability, Capillary Pressure, Saturation profiles and modelling

About this Micro Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)

The restricted mineralogy of Carbonate Reservoirs and their susceptibility to post-depositional changes greatly influences their petrophysical behaviour and effects on fluid movement.

This Micro VILT will examine depositional textures and mineralogy and post-depositional changes, particularly pore fabrics and their effects on fluid movement.

Wettability in carbonate reservoir can be variable and may change during production. Combined with highly differing pore networks, wettability may strongly influence capillary activity, charge and resultant saturation as well as subsequent drainage.

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.

To further optimise your learning experience from our courses, we also offer individualized “One to One” coaching support for 2 hours post training. We can help improve your competence in your chosen area of interest, based on your learning needs and available hours. This is a great opportunity to improve your capability and confidence in a particular area of expertise. It will be delivered over a secure video conference call by one of our senior trainers. They will work with you to create a tailor-made coaching program that will help you achieve your goals faster.
