Petroleum geologists, reservoir geologists and engineers involved in the assessment of reservoir heterogeneity and connectivity; petroleum exploration geochemists who wish to expand their knowledge into reservoir geochemistry.
Introduction to general concepts:- Reservoir fluid properties and characteristics- Rate and mechanism of reservoir filling and mixing- Engineering versus geochemical nomenclature- Hydrocarbons and non-hydrocarbons- Relationship of hydrocarbon composition to petroleum properties- Analytical methodsApplications of petroleum geochemistry to the understanding of reservoir fluids:- Tested oil: Interpreting gas chromatograms and GC-MS; non-hydrocarbons/ interpretation; application to reservoir continuity/connectivity- Gas: Non-hydrocarbon gases (compositions/sources); hydrocarbon compositions/interpretations; isotope studies- Water: API analysis; Stiff diagrams; action on reservoir matrix; effect on hydrocarbon composition/petroleum properties; water in sub-surface (variations/perturbations)- Residual oil: Extraction data/interpretations (relationship of poroperm and logs; interpreting fractionation, GC-MS; oil-saturated non-flowing reservoirs; tarmats and reservoired oils)
