Modern Carbonates Course – Belize, Central America

This course has been run on 23 previous occasions, combining “wet” lectures in the field, a guided overflight and dry land lectures to illustrate the geological evolution of Devonian reservoir units of Western Canada. Isolate reef and barrier zonation, siliciclastic shoreline to carbonate reef transition and outlying atolls are examined, emphasizing spatial variability and resulting reservoir parameters. Resulting exploration play types are highlighted.

Modern Carbonates Course – Florida/Bahamas

This course has been run on more than 16 previous occasions, combining “wet” lectures in the field, a guided overflight and dry land lectures to illustrate the geological evolution of Devonian reservoir units of Western Canada. Exposure to barrier and patch reef systems, mobile (oolite) sand shoals, lagoonal muds and tidal flat settings are examined, emphasizing spatial variability and resulting reservoir parameters. Resulting exploration play types are highlighted.

Modern Carbonates Course – Bahamas

This course focuses specifically on providing analogues to Mississippian producing units in the Western Canadian Sedimentary basin. Field stops illustrate depositional facies associations and provide modern examples of Mississippian reservoir developments. Examination of Pleistocene outcrop sections provides a means of reviewing subsequent diagenesis.

Ancient Carbonate Course – Calgary, Canada

Run on more than 50 previous occasions, this 4 day course will benefit explorationists who are charged with visualizing reservoir heterogeneity and building predictive models to find and exploit reservoirs in carbonate rocks. Instructors Frank Stoakes and SCG Staff illustrate the geological evolution of Devonian reservoir units of Western Canada. Lectures, case histories and core examination will familiarize delegates with identification and interpretation of depositional facies. Emphasis is on geometry, distribution and development of reservoir quality porosity in carbonates. The course is taught at the AER Core Research Centre.
