Evaluation of Volcanic Reservoirs (GEO59)

    Description

    This course describes the most common geological characteristics of volcanic reservoirs and the tools and exploration workflow necessary in the evaluation of this play system. It will provide intermediate knowledge about the type of rocks, petrology, physical properties, pore and fracture systems, and geometry of different volcanic and volcano-sedimentary systems.
    The main objectives of this course are:
    1) to explain the common techniques to investigate and evaluate the reservoir characteristics
    2) to relate well dataset with geophysical information, in order to characterise the internal architecture of a volcanic reservoir and the lateral continuity
    3) to predict the reservoir distribution in order to produce an integrated geological model and to decrease the risks.
    Paper based exercises on integrated seismic and well logs dataset will be prepared to simulate an exploration workflow on a volcanic reservoir of the Pacific.

    Course Level: Intermediate / Advanced
    Instructor: Gabriele Lena
