Short Course Catalogue

Welcome Words

Catalogue Structure On behalf of the Board of the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE), please allow me to introduce EAGE Short Courses in which you will find a complete overview of EAGE Short Courses.

This catalogue is designed to provide a clear overview of EAGE Short Courses. Most of the EAGE Short Courses are multidisciplinary. Each discipline is identified with a significant icon. The courses are grouped based on the first discipline they fall under. The other applicable disciplines are shown as secondary disciplines. An example makes the categorization clearer:

EAGE offers approximately 80 Short Courses, most of them multidisciplinary, with durations ranging from one to five days. The EAGE courses are usually focused on topics that are not offered by commercial organizations and based on state-of-the-art methods and techniques.

Let us say Short Course 1 has three disciplines: Geophysics, Geology, Reservoir and Production Engineering. In this case, this course is grouped under Geophysics and the other applicable disciplines, Geology and Reservoir and Production Engineering, are shown as second and third disciplines.

Our courses are designed to increase knowledge and awareness of new methodology for geoscience specialists. These short courses do not only reflect the latest scientific developCROSS DISCIPLINE DRILLING GEOCHEMISTRY GEOLOGY ments in geosciences but also demonstrate applications of these theories to real-life problems.

Course Description: This course will discuss the principles of microseismic monitoring. A brief historical overview of earthquake and micro-earthquake monitoring techniques in related fields will allow a basic insight and a list of the most important publications will be provided. Downhole monitoring techniques will be described with detailed examples of complete processes from velocity model building, through geophone orientation to microseismic event locations. Principles of surface monitoring will also be discussed with examples of velocity model calibration, location of microseismic events and source mechanism analysis. The course will also explain the principles of source mechanisms inversion and an estimation of the strength of anisotropy from shear-wave splitting. The course will briefly discuss application of microseismic monitoring to reservoir stimulation, particularly to estimate a stimulated reservoir volume. Finally, case studies and a broader discussion of felt seismicity in the vicinity of oil- and gasfields will be discussed. Course Objectives: Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to: •  Design an optimal array for passive seismic (surface or downhole) monitoring and estimate uncertainties of locations for microseismic events. •  Orient downhole geophones from a perforation or calibration shot and estimate the approximate distance and depth of a recorded microseismic event. •  Locate from the surface monitoring array and estimate source mechanisms of visible microseismic events and pick first arrivals on a surface array. •  Measure S-wave splitting. •  Calculate the stimulated reservoir volume from microseismic event locations.

Course Description: This AVO (Amplitude Versus Offset) course is a one-day short course introducing the basics of AVO, rock physics and seismic inversion (without lots of equations) supplemented by several case studies showing the practical application of the methods and potential pitfalls to be aware of when using these techniques. The course is aimed at people with little or no practical AVO experience and is designed to equip them with some basic techniques to perform AVO work themselves and to critically assess AVO, rock physics and seismic inversion studies when presented with them. The course is conducted in an open seminar format with key course notes provided to participants. Active discussion and shared learning are encouraged. Course Objectives: Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to understand the commercial application of AVO, rock physics and seismic inversion methods; what the results tell you and the possible limitations and errors in those results. Participants will be in a better position to critically analyze the results of such studies presented to them by contractors or partner companies. Participants will also be shown techniques to enable them to undertake some simple reconnaissance AVO procedures. Participants’ Profile: Interpreters, geologists, geophysicists and other geoscience disciplines who have an interest in understanding how AVO, rock physics and seismic inversion are applied in real-world studies. Prerequisites: Participants should have some knowledge of seismic data (prestack and post-stack) and well log data.

An Introduction to Velocity Model Building

Course Description: The state of stress within the Earth has a profound effect on the propagation of seismic and borehole acoustic waves and this leads to many important applications of elastic waves for solving problems in petroleum geomechanics. The purpose of this course is to provide an overview of the sensitivity of elastic waves in the Earth to the in-situ stress, pore pressure and anisotropy of the rock fabric resulting from the depositional and stress history of the rock and to introduce some of the applications of this sensitivity. The course will provide the basis for applying geophysics and rock physics solutions to geomechanical challenges in exploration, drilling and production. A variety of applications and real data examples will be presented and particular emphasis will be placed on the rock physics basis underlying the use of geophysical data for solving geomechanical problems. This course was a SEG/ EAGE DISC 2010 course.

Course Objectives: This is not a survey design course. Survey design is discussed but not covered in detail. Upon completion, the participant should be able to: •  Improve knowledge of where seismic acquisition comes from and where it may be going. •  Gain the capability to distinguish between signal and noise parts – at least for most cases. •  Understand the available leverage on signal and noise as well as the leverage that is not available. •  Most importantly, understand that there is a relationship between acquisition parameters and seismic image quality. Ideally increase their knowledge of this relationship. Participants’ Profile: All those interested in seismic imagery. The acquisition geophysicist may discover an unfamiliar presentation of familiar concepts. The processing geophysicist may discover the causes of some types of perturbations in seismic images. Likewise, the interpreter may gain understanding of the limitations in seismic images. Those in charge of financing these images may understand better why they are so expensive. The mathematical level of this course is elementary, although those with no idea of what the Fourier transform is may find some chapters difficult to follow. Those with no prior knowledge of seismic reflection would profit from advance reading of chapters 2 (especially the definitions) and 3, which will be presented relatively fast in this one-day course.

Course Description: This course is designed for a broad range of seismic researchers, data processors and interpreters working in the petroleum industry. The course teaches the principles of seismic interferometry and its applications to surface seismic, VSP and OBS data. The ultimate objectives are to enable geophysicists to evaluate the potential of seismic interferometry in uniquely solving their problems. Course Objectives: Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to: •  Replicate the basic workflow for applying seismic interferometry to seismic data. •  Execute MATLAB codes for applying seismic interferometry to deterministic VSP and SSP data. •  Derive the basic equations of interferometry. •  A diligent and well-prepared participant might be able to adapt a novel interferometric solution to their particular seismic problem. Participants’ Profile: The integrated nature of this course means that it is suitable for seismic interpreters, researchers and data processors. Managers are encouraged to attend in order to consider the potential of seismic interferometry in solving some of their exploration and reservoir problems. Prerequisites: Participants should have knowledge of: •  calculus and some familiarity with the intuitive physics of wave propagation, e.g., geomterical spreading, traveltime representation for kinematics, reflection coefficients and mathematical description of spherical waves.

Course Description: There seems to be a very recent acceleration in the evolution of seismic acquisition. Offshore, wide-azimuth surveys have resulted in images of remarkable clarity. On land, increase in channel count has allowed the use of denser grids leading to significant noise reduction. Both onshore and offshore, the race for bandwidth extension is tenser than ever. This course presents these developments as a natural consequence of the conjunction of our need for clearer seismic images and the availability of recent technological advances. The core of the course is the relationship between acquisition parameters and seismic image quality. This course was a SEG/EAGE 2011 course.

Course Description: This course provides some context for what is driving the dynamic changes linked to producing a hydrocarbon reservoir and what we should expect to observe using seismic technologies in various geological settings. We will address key issues that impact the feasibility of time-lapse seismic and discuss established methods. However, the focus will be on ‘new’ technologies, use of permanent array, frequent seismic surveying and integration. An example form the Valhall field will be used extensively to illustrate the potential of seismic data and to articulate issues related to interpretation and integration. This will include data examples from marine tow 4D and frequent surveying using permanent installed sensors and in well recordings an analysis of passive data, including micro seismicity. Course Objectives: In the course we will aim at addressing: •  What type of fields and mechanisms are candidates for seismic surveillance •  Presenting an overview of available technologies for seismic surveillance of a producing reservoir, with a primary focus on time-lapse methods •  Integrations across the disciplines, challenges and benefits •  How do we value a seismic surveillance •  Can a recent example of emerging technologies tell us what the future will bring? Participants’ Profile: This course should be of interest to managers, geoscientists and reservoir and petroleum engineers who are aiming to integrate time-lapse seismic data into the next level of technical and business decisions and anyone else who sees the benefit of tracking changes in the subsurface as they take place.

Course Description: The course is designed to familiarize participants with the latest developments in marine seismic acquisition including wide-azimuth with its many geometry variants, broadband techniques (boosting high and low frequencies), sea-bed receivers for both P-wave and convertedwave recordings, time-lapse surveys and the emerging technology of simultaneous source acquisition. Course Objectives: A practical approach is adopted and is designed to provide the student with an up-to-date understanding of recent developments in marine seismic acquisition technology. At the end of the course the student should be able to understand why and where these new technologies would be applicable, understand what studies are required to design new surveys and understand the relative costs of acquiring and processing seismic data compared to conventional acquisition. Participants’ Profile: The course is designed for geophysicists and explorationists who wish to gain an overview of recent developments in 3D marine seismic acquisition. Students are assumed to have a working knowledge of the seismic method and its use in exploration and development of hydrocarbon resources. Prerequisites: Participants should have a working knowledge of conventional seismic acquisition techniques and their use in exploration and development of hydrocarbon resources.

Prerequisites: Basic appreciation of geosciences and petroleum technical principles linked to producing hydrocarbon is recommended.

Course Description: Imaging in the time domain still remains an important processing and interpretation tool. Moreover, for complex models that request the use of prestack depth migration, time imaging usually constitutes a key first step. The proposed course discusses: •  time-imaging procedures (Multifocusing and Common Reflection Surface) when each image trace is constructed by stacking traces not belonging to the same CMP gather; •  diffraction imaging based on scattered rather than reflected energy with an aim to image small- scale seismic objects including fractures; •  imaging without precise knowledge of the subsurface velocity model based on an analogy to the Feynman path integral. Course Objectives: The course presents a new vision on modern seismic data processing and imaging and discusses its advantages and limitations. It describes a wide range of emerging technologies (besides depth migration and full-waveform inversion) aimed to increase reliability and resolution of the seismic method. Participants’ Profile: The course can be interesting for geophysicists working in data processing and imaging as well as for researchers and developers of new procedures for seismic imaging, wavefield parameter estimation and velocity model building. Prerequisites: Basic knowledge of seismic data acquisition and processing, static correction, CMP stacking for zero-offset approximation, normal moveout (NMO) correction, velocity analysis, semblance coherency measure, dip moveout and the ray theory.

Course Description: Seismic diffractions are the response to discontinuities in the subsurface. The imaging of seismic diffractions is an emerging technology for the detection of faults, stratigraphic pinchouts and other small-scale heterogeneities for which the seismic reflection response is very limited. This course will cover the forward and inverse problems from first principles. The formulation of the forward problem will extend from the discovery of the phenomenon of diffraction and the basic mathematical formulation of Fresnel and Kirchhoff to the evolution of the modern geometrical theory of diffraction and the application of the theory to seismic modeling. The diffraction response will be illustrated on seismic data in a variety of geological settings. The inverse problem of diffraction imaging will be covered beginning with the early work of the 1970s up to the cutting edge technology of diffraction imaging in prestack time and prestack depth and dip-angle domains. Course Objectives: The participants should gain a basic understanding of the diffraction response of simple geological features and an understanding of the processing and interpretation workflows for diffraction imaging. Participants’ Profile: Researchers, seismic processing and interpretation geophysicists and reservoir characterization geoscientists.

Course Description: This course covers the fundamentals of rock physics, ranging from basic laboratory and theoretical results to practical recipes that can be immediately applied in the field. We will present qualitative and quantitative tools for understanding and predicting the effects of lithology, pore fluid types and saturation, stress and pore pressure, fractures and temperature on seismic velocity and attenuation. Moreover, we will show the importance and benefit of linking rock physics to geologic processes, including depositional and compactional trends. We further document that lithology substitution can be as equally important as fluid substitution during seismic reservoir prediction. It is important in exploration and appraisal to extrapolate away from existing wells, taking into account how the depositional environment changes as well as burial depth trends. In this way rock physics can better constrain the geophysical inversion and classification problem in underexplored marginal fields, surrounding satellite areas, or in new frontiers. Course Objectives: The ultimate goal is to improve the understanding of seismic amplitudes and predict geologic and reservoir parameters from seismic inversion data. Upon completion, participants will able to: •  Understand the link between geologic processes and rock physics properties •  Understand pore fluid / rock interactions during wave propagation •  Understand upscaling and heterogeneous reservoirs •  Comprehend shale and carbonate rock physics Participants’ Profile: The course is intended for geophysicists, geologists and petrophysicists who are involved in quantitative seismic interpretation, both within exploration and production.

Course Description: This course covers all areas of applied seismic anisotropy, with class exercises and ample time for full discussions. Because anisotropy is such a fundamental concept, it covers topics in seismic acquisition, processing, imaging and interpretation, all based on seismic rock physics. Course Objectives: This is not a ‘methods course’ but rather a ‘concept course’, familiarizing the students with essential concepts, enabling them to ask the right questions in future conversations, rather than to operate particular software packages. Participants’ Profile: Geophysicists should attend who have a working knowledge of conventional exploration geophysics and wonder how it can be that we use isotropic concepts to acquire and analyze data that come from rocks that, after only brief thoughtful consideration, must clearly be anisotropic. The course is particularly important in this era of unconventional resource plays.

Participants’ Profile: Geophysicists who are involved in seismic data processing and/or are a member of a multidisciplinary team for special studies, like e.g., time-to-depth conversion, AVO, inversion, reserve estimation etc. and those who need such an overview as a starting point for their future work. Prerequisites: Course participants should have a notion of seismic acquisition and processing practices.

Course Description: The flow of oil and gas through porous reservoir rock is controlled by the permeability of the reservoir. A single permeability system is completely controlled by the rock properties of the reservoir. The presence of faults and/ or fractures complicates the flow by creating a dual porosity/ permeability system when open fractures are present (conduits). Sealing faults can create isolated reservoir compartments (seals). Consequently, prediction of conduits and seals is an essential element in oil and gas exploration and development. This course introduces reliable, proven, state-of-the-art geomechanical methods to predict fracture conduits and fault seals. Course Objectives: The participants will be able to decide on the appropriate fault sealing mechanism and perform a fault seal prediction. The location and orientation of natural open fracture systems can be predicted, using a variety of techniques. The methods taught in this course are universally applicable, including for exploration, field development and underground storage of natural gas or CO2. Participants’ Profile: Geologists, geophysicists and reservoir engineers who have to work with faulted and fractured reservoirs will benefit from this short course. The topic is relevant for exploration as well as for production. Prerequisites: Participants should have knowledge of basic geology and structural geology, geophysics and reservoir engineering. Some practical experience in E&P projects is recommended.

Course Description: The core of this course is a new powerful method of fault seal prediction. The method is qualitative, based on geomechanics and has been calibrated with field cases. The course is based on geomechanics as a sound foundation for structural geological concepts and the behavior of rocks in the brittle regime. Mechanical rock properties and ways and means to determine these properties form an important element of this course. Following an introduction to geomechanics, the theory of fracturing of brittle, ductile and viscous rocks is treated, illustrated with field examples and case histories. An exercise based on real data forms an important element of the course. Cases requiring the use of numerical models are discussed but numerical modeling does not form part of the course. Course Objectives: Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to •  Recognize the most appropriate fault seal mechanism for an area of choice. •  Perform a quantitative fault seal analysis and if necessary perform a palaeo stress analysis as a basis for fault seal prediction. •  Assess top and fault seal integrity for subsurface processes including exploration, field development and subsurface storage of natural gas or CO2. Participants’ Profile: The course is intended for geoscientists and subsurface engineers that deal with geological problems in relation to (potential) sealing problems with top seals and faults. The relatively advanced subject level requires that participants have at least a basic knowledge of structural geology and they should have field experience of 5 years or more. Prerequisites: Knowledge of basic structural geology and basic reservoir engineering. Five or more years of experience in E&P projects is recommended.

Course Description: The course is designed to combine basic geostatistical concepts with an overview of state-of-the art conventional and novel algorithms. Many modeling challenges arise in reservoirs with the non-stationary multi-scale correlation of a structure and complex connectivity patterns. The sparsity of available direct measurements of reservoir properties is another constant problem for modeling. Machine learning provides new opportunities in data integration and model control. Novel machine learning techniques are good at capturing dependencies from data when their parametric description is difficult; and controlling the impact of noisy and ad-hoc data. The course includes examples and hands-on exercises. Course Objectives: Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to: understand key geostatistical concepts and their implementation into reservoir modeling, be familiar with a variety of conventional and advanced stochastic modeling algorithms and the specifics of their application and realize the impact of different modeling assumptions. Participants’ Profile: Geoscientists and engineers involved in reservoir model building and data integration. Prerequisites: Participants should have knowledge in geosciences

Course Description: Heavy oil and bitumen will become the major liquid petroleum source in about 50 years. Novel enhanced oil recovery technologies will improve the recovery factors from conventional oil reservoirs as well as viscous oil deposits. Because the vast majority of the world’s viscous petroleum is in shallow (<1000 m) sandstones of high porosity (0.25), we will focus on new production technologies for this class of assets. Geomechanics is an important aspect in such strata and a strong focus is on the reservoir mechanical response to production. The concepts are applicable to all types of oil and different lithotypes. Course Objectives: Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to: •  Evaluate their assets more rationally for the full range of commercial technologies available. •  Develop geoscience-based screening criteria for production practices. •  Understand the importance of geomechanics and the changes in properties that take place during exploitation of reservoirs. •  Appreciate the importance of deformation monitoring to process optimization. Participants’ Profile: This course is suitable for anyone with an engineering or scientific background but it is not mathematical or complex in nature. The course will benefit geoscientists (geologists, geophysicists...) of all levels and any oil industry engineer will benefit from the course. Prerequisites: There are no prerequisites for the course although a basic understanding of the production aspects of the petroleum industry would be beneficial and a basic understanding of geosciences will certainly be helpful.

Course Description: This is an OUTWARD facing course for people who need to understand geophysics because it can solve their problems and will be driven by problems regularly encountered and their optimal geophysical solution in collaboration with the essential but last to be applied intrusive investigation. This course will address the nature of geophysics, the range of problems that can be addressed by it, what can be seen and what can’t and the limitations imposed by the laws of physics and ‘environmental noise’. Course Objectives: What is really important is how we combine techniques in a truly integrated way to solve subtle, complex and critical problems that one technique alone cannot satisfy. Participants’ Profile: Geoscientists, environmentalists, water, civil and geotechnical engineers and engineering, mining and hydrogeologists. In fact all those who have responsibilities for specifying and procuring geophysical services or appointing and directing geophysical staff but who do not feel that they understand the techniques, approaches, strengths and limitations of geophysics well enough to obtain optimal advice but understand survey/interpretation information. The course will also be suitable for those who wish for an application / casestudy oriented introduction to environmental geophysics concentrating on the problems and their solutions with recourse to mathematical analysis only where really necessary.

Course Description: This course covers the geological and geophysical concepts governing the near-surface. Methods for investigating and characterizing the near-surface such as remote sensing and surface geophysical methods are presented. The different measurements are archived and integrated into a geographical information system (GIS). Course Objectives: The course introduces geomorphology as a concept to understand the geological and geophysical characteristics of the near-surface, enabling the students to extract structural and lithological information. This information can be used on the one hand for the prediction of shallow drilling hazards and outlining deeper structures and on the other hand for the correction of near-surface effects in seismic data processing. Participants’ Profile: Geophysicists and geologists who are working in exploration and are curious to understand the impact of the near-surface on subsurface geophysical data and wish to understand what the surface geomorphology can tell them about subsurface structures. Prerequisites: Participants should have basic knowledge of geophysics and geology.

Prerequisites: Attendees should have experience / knowledge of the types and range of environmental/engineering problems that are encountered in the near-surface and a desire to learn how to best approach them. A working knowledge of elementary mathematics and physics will help but a willingness to engage with the material is more important.

Course Description: This course provides an in-depth insight into the physics of hydrocarbon recovery and the mathematics of reservoir simulation. It deals with the basics of displacement of hydrocarbons by water in hydrocarbon reservoirs, the impact of geological heterogeneities and the challenges associated with trying to optimize the recovery of hydrocarbons. Course Objectives: With the currently available computing power it is now possible to model both highly complex geological environments and highly complex hydrocarbon recovery mechanisms. In view of the enormous amount of data in reservoir simulation models there is an increasing tendency to have an unlimited belief in model predictions and omit the necessary quality checks on fundamentals. This course is aimed to (re)gain an in-depth insight into the fundamentals of hydrocarbon recovery in relatively simple geological models. Participants’ Profile: Geoscientists who wish to obtain a good insight into the fundamentals of hydrocarbon recovery and the impact of geological heterogeneities on displacement efficiencies and reservoir engineers who wish to refresh their basic understanding of hydrocarbon recovery.

Course Description: Borehole stability is based on a good understanding of Earth stresses, drilling mechanics, geological knowledge, chemistry and general mechanics. The course will cover all of these aspects, giving the participant a basic introduction to the large themes involved in planning and executing wellbores in challenging conditions. The major thrust of the course is based on geomechanics, the mechanical response of geological strata to changes in stress, temperature and chemistry. Course Objectives: Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to have a first-order understanding of the issues that affect the stability of wellbores during drilling. Because the course is based on a geomechanics view, geoscientists and engineers will take away a stronger understanding of the mechanics involved in sustaining and improving the stability of boreholes in shale, salt and sandstones under a wide range of extrinsic conditions. Participants’ Profile: This course is intended for petroleum engineers and geoscientists involved in development work and borehole planning and will provide a geomechanics framework for borehole stability to drilling engineers and supervisors, drillers, mud loggers and directional drilling and MWD engineers. Prerequisites: A basic understanding of mechanics and geology is desirable but the course is self-contained; those never exposed to rock mechanics or tectonics will rapidly pick up the major principles because materials are presented from a physical point of view. Even those specialized in rock mechanics will find new ideas and methods that will affect how they approach well design and drilling.

Course Description: Three-dimensional geomechanical models are becoming frequently used to assess the state of stress inside the Earth. This course describes the process of building 3D mechanical property models, calculation of the state of stress inside the Earth and calibration of 3D geomechanical models with 3D and 4D seismic data observations. The process is illustrated by field case studies. Geomechanics is still a relatively new discipline in the oilfield environment and is not taught as part of most university geoscience programs. Therefore a lot of graphic examples to aid intuitive understanding are included in the course material. Course Objectives: •  Provide an overview of currently available workflows to build, run and calibrate reservoir geomechanical models maximizing the use of 3D and 4D seismic data; •  Apply the understanding gained from running such workflows to field development and reservoir management; •  Understand the limitations of current workflows and techniques and provide a glimpse of the road ahead. Participants’ Profile: The integrated nature of the subject and approach makes this course appealing to practitioners and researchers from a wide range of subsurface disciplines, ranging from geophysics, geomechanics, geomodeling, geology, rock physics and reservoir engineering. Prerequisites: This course is aimed at geoscientists and engineers with an interest in integration between different subsurface disciplines. The course presents currently available seismic-to-simulation techniques. The course has an emphasis on making the physics behind the presented techniques accessible and clear and will appeal to curious and inquisitive people. This course is also suited for Master’s and PhD students as the course (material) is designed in such a way that the principles of geomechanics become clear.

Duration: one-day CPD Points: 5 Course Level: Advanced Instructor: Abul Jamaluddin, Schlumberger

Course Description: This course presented in two modules. In the first part, the importance of geomechanics in the development of shale gas resources will be discussed. Constructing 1D to 4D geomechanical models using geology and drilling information, well logs and core data from off-set wells is a major part of this section of the course. How to calibrate the model with regional stress and rock strength data will also be discussed. The second part includes different applications of geomechanics related to shale plays. Mechanical and chemical wellbore instabilities, hydraulic fracturing design and optimization, maximizing production from natural fractures, compaction and subsidence, casing collapse and multi-lateral junctions are applications that will be covered in this module. The differences between geomechanical analysis in conventional and unconventional reservoirs will be explained and special attention will be paid to rock anisotropy.

Course Description: Impediment to flow caused by either fluid phase behavior coupled with the dynamics of flow and/or production-chemistry-related issues in the near-wellbore, wellbores and flow lines has long been identified in onshore and offshore shallow-water environments. These events become more severe in a deepwater environment as the intervention is very challenging from both technical and cost considerations.

Course Description: This course considers how the upstream oil and gas business can make itself attractive to top-level young geoscience and engineering undergraduates. It will consider the education they can be given in universities so they are most effective upon graduation and how to develop and retain them through their careers. The first part of the course is a formal review of where things stand. The second moves into ‘workshop mode’ to discuss local issues and tailor specific solutions. Course Objectives: Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to lay out a strategic plan to recruit and develop top graduates and plan their training programs. Participants’ Profile: The course is designed for Human Resource teams tasked with recruiting and developing staff for their technical departments.

Course Description: Overpressure is experienced in most sedimentary basins where reservoirs are associated with finegrained lithologies (such as shales), in particular at depths of 2.0 km or greater below the sea-bed. Recent advances in the understanding of overpressure, in particular the magnitude of overpressure resulting from each of the main mechanisms under realistic basin conditions, give improved confidence in estimating pore pressures. Participants will learn about the required inputs for displaying reservoir pressure data, the theory and methods underlying pore pressure prediction and the limitations of the techniques employed. Course Objectives: Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to: •  Interpret a variety of pressure data and how they relate to safe and efficient drilling •  Create locally calibrated hydrostatic and lithostatic gradients •  Interpret data on a pressure-depth plot and relate these data to local and regional geologies •  Use a variety of wireline data e.g., sonic, resistivity and density to predict pore pressure in shales using the Eaton ratio and equivalent depth methods •  Compare reservoir pressure data and shale pressure predictions and understand the relationship between the two •  Recognize the limitations of pore pressure prediction in shales Participants’ Profile: This training course is designed for geologists, geophysicists, petrophysicists and reservoir/drilling engineers with an interest in overpressure and high-pressure reservoirs, i.e., anyone who wants to understand overpressure and to know about the methods to predict it ahead of the bit. Prerequisites: A familiarity with oilfield practices will be an advantage.
