Workshop on Carbonate-Evaporite Systems

OPC’s Toby Gledhill at advanced carbonate workshop

OPC’s Toby Gledhill took part in an advanced carbonate workshop: “Carbonate-Evaporite Systems”, run by Cambridge Carbonates on 18th-20th November 2019.

The workshop focused on sequence stratigraphy, petroleum systems, diagenesis and reservoir quality of Zechstein, UK; the Arabian Plate, and parts of the Gulf Of Mexico.  It presented an overview of the wide variety of carbonate reservoirs that form in different depositional and sequence stratigraphic settings and emphasises the response of carbonate systems to syn- and post-depositional salt movement.

Toby said:

“This was a really excellent workshop which added to my knowledge of carbonate-evaporate systems. There were several relevant examples that directly relate to the challenges faced by our clients.”
