GEOLOGICAL FIELD TRIP

GEOLOGICAL FIELD TRIP

Discipline: Geology, Geophysics, Petrophysics, Reservoir and Production Eng.

Level: Basic/Intermediate

Duration:5 days

Instructor(s): Gonzalo Ruiz, Javier Prieto, Jesús Sotomayor

Purpose

Our fieldtrips are focused on reservoir geology of fluvial transition deposits, concentrating on those aspects and features that relate to fluid flow in the sub-surface, specifically to evaluate Ayoluengo Oil and Gas Field, in the Cantabrian Basin of Spain. The field trip is oriented in depositional environments that relate directly to the reservoir geological knowledge and experience. It is an introduction to exploration geology, petroleum systems and petroleum geology.  The objectives are to introduce the concepts and principles for the petroleum geology from exploration, appraisal basis knowledge for the best reservoir development in the development of a geostatistical model. It will be address on how to apply the information recorded in the field trip in a real geological mode, by the comparison between the reality with the computer geological model. It is important to understand the limitation of the capabilities of the computer models results and the real geology and how we can obtain the best value by integrating the outcrops information and the facies and properties distribution in the models.
