Introduction: Definition of Reservoir and Reservoir Lifecycle, Exploration Techniques: A brief Introduction, Petroleum History, World Energy Resources, Reserves and Economics.
Geology: Seven geological principles with emphasis on Uniformitarianism, Superposition, Lateral Continuity and Faunal Successions, Earth’s internal structure and plate tectonics, Geological time scale with major geological episodes and rock types.
Petroleum Systems: Covering major elements, processes of hydrocarbon generation, source and reservoir rocks (including clastics, carbonates and igneous), Introductions to traps and seals.
Depositional Systems: Will cover sedimentary systems (Clastic: aeolian, fluvial, deltaic, shallow marine, bays and estuarine), Carbonate systems (reefs, platforms, ramps), Igneous (Fractured Igneous rocks with special emphasis on Basalts).
Pore Systems- Effective, Ineffective: Characterizing the pore systems in Clastic, Carbonate and fractured igneous rocks porosity and their relation to permeability, effects of diagenesis, partial metamorphism and mineral transformations, Clay types and their distributions and effects on poro-perm systems.
Unconventional Reservoirs: Special emphasis on shale as a source and reservoir, Brief introduction to shale oil and shale gas and their economic viability in today’s low cost driven markets.
Geology from scratch to production: Will include brief introduction to exploration programs, various petroleum plays, petroleum reserves and risks in development and optimization.
Critical Reservoir Parameters: Lithology (Stacks), Porosity-permeability, resistivity and drilling fluid invasion into the formation and shale volume
Seal and Traps

About The Trainer:
Balaji Bhosle holds doctorate in Earth Sciences with specialization in Sedimentology and Petrology. He started his career as Core Analyst/Sedimentologist with ACS Laboratories. Balaji was instrumental in setting up the Core analysis laboratory in Ahmedabad, a subsidiary of ACS Labs Australia. During his tenure at Ahmedabad, Balaji worked in almost all the major basins of India with focus on the KG Offshore, Cambay Basin and Barmer onshore basin. He was promoted to Geoscientist-III and Laboratory Supervisor in 2009. He worked in this capacity till 2012.
He joined Weatherford Labs in Australia (Brisbane) as a Sedimentology-Petrology Technical Leader. He was given charge of Geochemistry Lab apart from Sedimentology and Petrology. He worked on almost all the major basins of Australia and Thailand (both onshore and offshore Thai basins and Malay basins) during his tenure till 2016 with Weatherford. He moved back to India in 2016 and established Advanced Geological Consultancy Services working as a Head of Geological Studies and Director. He is working on various projects of Thailand onshore-offshore basins and Indian basins. He was active member of Geological society of Australia, AAPG, SPE, IAS and PSI. Balaji has published research papers in peer reviewed journals and SPE conferences. He is an active reviewer of research articles of many peer-reviewed journals.
