A Associação Brasileira de Geólogos do Petróleo promove nos dia 9 e 10 de dezembro, no Rio de Janeiro, o minicurso "Carbonate Stratigraphy and Outcrop Analogs in Petroleum Exploration and Production", com os instrutores Peter Homewood e Monique Mettraux (GEOSOLUTIONS TRD).
This classroom short course will comprise lectures, short documentary films, short exercises and discussion sessions. The course will focus on a number of case studies that link outcrop and subsurface geology and have relevance to petroleum exploration and production. Case studies range from Precambrian to Holocene in age, and come from Oman, Namibia, Alberta, Bahamas, Green River Fm CO-UT USA and Great Salt Lake UT USA.
The course builds on basic knowledge of sedimentary geology but does not require specialist skills from participants.
Monique Mettraux is CEO of GEOSOLUTIONS TRD SAS, an independent company for Geosciences Training, Research and Development. For the past four years she has been working exclusively with Petrobras E&P, and has been based in Rio de Janeiro since 2011. Monique has previously worked as a professional training instructor, for PDO, IFP, IAP, Sonatrach and Petrobras. Monique has also worked with the department of Production Chemistry of Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) on Formation Damage Prevention. She received her PhD in 1988 and her MSc in 1983 at Fribourg University in Switzerland. Between 1992 and 1998, Monique has worked on a wide range of industrial projects with a focus on carbonates (for Andra, Elf Aquitaine and Gaz de France). Between 1988 and 2007, Monique maintained her academic research activity by working on projects with Universities of Rennes, Strasbourg, and Dijon in France, and with Sultan Qaboos University in Oman. Her research interests focus on the sedimentological and geochemical aspects of sedimentary rocks, mainly carbonates.
Peter Homewood is Director of GEOSOLUTIONS TRD SAS, an independent company for Geosciences Training, Research and Development. For the past four years he has been working exclusively with Petrobras E&P, and has been based in Rio de Janeiro since 2011. He was Director of the Shell-endowed Carbonate Studies Centre at Sultan Qaboos University in Oman, and Professor of Carbonate Geology there, from 2001–2005. Peter was Senior Advisor for Sedimentology, Elf EP and TotalFinaElf (both now Total) between 1988 and 2001. He obtained his PhD (1973) from Lausanne University in Switzerland. Peter was editor of IAS Journal "Sedimentology" (1986–1990), IAS Publications secretary (1990–1994), and AAPG European Distinguished Lecturer (1998–1999). He received the Elf Science Prize (1995), the TotalFinaElf communications award (2000), and the Canadian Society of Petroleum Geologists (2000) Best Paper Award in 2001. Peter was Chairman of the 24th Meeting of the IAS in Muscat (2005).
