Subsurface Facies Analysis

This course reviews the basic parameters of facies analysis, including cores, cutting, well-logs, seismic, and other diagnostic methods using productive sandstone and carbonate reservoirs as examples.

Reviews basic parameters in defining a facies–lithology, sedimentary structures, paleontology, geometry and associated environments. Discusses information sources, including cores, cuttings, well logs and seismic, and summarizes diagnostic features of major facies. Presents case studies on environmental diagnosis of productive sandstone and carbonate reservoirs.
