This five-day course introduces the principles of carbonate sedimentology, stratigraphy and diagenesis as applied to hydrocarbon exploration and development geology. Learning objectives stress the principles that shape carbonate accumulations and the development of interpretive skills. The course emphasizes the development of original depositional, stratigraphic or diagenetic models by highlighting process-response relationships on a facies scale and basin dynamics on the scale of carbonate platforms. The session includes a number of relevant examples.  

A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.

Conference Speakers

Franz O. Meyer is currently an independent consulting geologist and president of Carbonate Research Consulting in Elbert, Colorado. He holds a BS in geology from State University College of New York at New Paltz along with an MS and Ph.D. in geology from the University of Michigan. Franz has over 23 years of domestic and international industry experience in carbonate training, exploration and production research. His training career includes seven years as head of the carbonate training program of a multinational petroleum company in Houston, Texas and 10 years of mentoring in the Middle East. He brings a wealth of global experience to carbonate training with applied diagenetic to sequence stratigraphic research on carbonate reservoirs and exploration plays from around the world. He has also studied most modern carbonate environments. Franz has published extensively, served on AAPG's education committee and retains memberships with a number of professional societies.
