Abstract: This one-day short course covers the application of seismic sequence stratigraphy, carbonate and siliciclastic lithofacies, and diagenesis to exploration and reservoir characterization in mixed carbonate/clastic systems.
The workshop will include examples of both conventional and unconventional reservoirs from the southwest US and Rocky Mountain regions that range from Middle Paleozoic to Permian in age. The workshop combines seismic, well log and rock data, to develop interpretations that help predict carbonate hydrocarbon systems, and characterize conventional and unconventional carbonate reservoirs and seals. The workshop covers (1) a review of carbonate and mixed depositional systems; (2) slope to basin deposition in mixed fine-
grained dominated depositional systems; (3) a summary of diagenetic alterations controlling porosity distribution; and (4) a summary of macro- and micro-pore reservoirs and specifically focusing on mud rocks.
