Introduction to the Petroleum Geology of Kurdistan

Audience

Petroleum geologists, explorationists, petrophysicists, geophysicists and engineers involved in the exploration of carbonate plays and development of carbonate reservoirs. Previous knowledge of carbonate sedimentology is not required.

Content

  • Carbonate reservoirs: Basic principles, depositional concepts, grain types, textures and fabrics, environmental reconstruction
  • The reservoir model - depositional and diagenetic characteristics
  • Carbonate diagenesis
  • Carbonate sequence stratigraphy
  • Log response in carbonate rocks
  • Reservoir assessment: Fracture reservoirs, reservoir modeling, volumetric assessment in correlation and mapping, effects of capillary pressure, interface with engineering
  • Characteristics of key reservoirs such as the Qamchuqa Formation, Aqra-Bekhme Formation and Shiranish Formation
  • Characteristics of key sealing units, e.g. Lower Fars, Aaliji and Shiranish Formations
  • Characteristics and maturity of key source horizons, e.g. Sargelu and Chia Gara
