This forum provided an open discussion on carbonate reservoir characterization and monitoring.


By far the largest and most extensive petroleum reservoirs worldwide exist in carbonate reservoirs, chiefly located in the Middle East. As these reservoirs mature it becomes imperative that we apply advanced geophysical and reservoir engineering technology to evaluate, monitor, and ultimately manage these important resources.

This five-day meeting in Bahrain examined the geological and geophysical characteristics of carbonate reservoirs and the role of geophysics in characterizing and managing them.

Technical topics

  • Geological framework and heterogeneity
  • Rock physics and formation evaluation
  • Seismic characteristics, including 3D and 4D and passive seismics
  • Electrical and potential methods in carbonates
  • Fracture characterization
  • Reservoir simulation and modeling
