Reservoir characterization and simulation modeling of naturally fractured reservoirs present unique challenges that differentiate it from
conventional, single porosity continuum reservoirs. Therefore, this workshop is specifically designed to provide you a solid introduction
to the engineering and geological character of fractured reservoirs. The focus is on understanding fractures in a reservoir, detecting
fractures and analyzing the fracture system for the purpose of improved reservoir management and hydrocarbon production.

The workshop discuss important topics and issues encountered when dealing with fractured reservoir formation evaluations such
as fractured properties, scales and attributes and their impact on fractured reservoir performance. Fractured reservoir porosity and
permeability will be discussed in details to provide participants an in-depth understanding on these parameters, their range of values and
methods used for better estimations. Other topics covered include data acquisition, techniques and limitations of natural fracture analysis
in core, borehole image, full wave form sonic data and open hole logs as well as fundamentals on fracture models with examples from
the Course Facilitator’s consulting projects. Formation damages and basement drilling issues will be further discussed to complete a
comprehensive view on fracture reservoir appraisal and development.

The last day of the workshop serves to provide attendants with practical case histories of fractured reservoirs worldwide in different
formations ranging from carbonates, clastics to basement in order to improve participants’ understandings about fractured reservoir
geology and characterization and provide the know-how strategies to address the complexity of this diverse class of reservoirs.

Jon has been with GeoScience since it started in the 1980’s and is currently Chief Geologist and Manager of the company’
s Consultancy Service in Fractured Reservoir Characterization for the hydrocarbons and geothermal industry.

He is responsible for marketing, sales, and technical supervision of FRC projects as well as performing his own technical
work including delivery of class room training and field-based training courses on Fracture Reservoir Characterization
in UK, Spanish Pyrenees and Middle East for Oil and Gas E&P industry.

His experience in GeoScience includes the management and technical supervision of a range of projects worldwide
including Europe, Africa, Russia, N and S America, Middle East and Far East, formations ranging from Pre-Cambrian
basement to Tertiary sediments.
He has detailed experience in fracture, flow and stress studies using well data and is in charge of development of local
to field-scale fracture models and simulation parameters by integration of well, outcrop and seismic data, for application
in well planning, volumetric estimations, or reservoir simulations.

Other experience includes structural geology and fracture characterization for geothermal energy developments
including Engineered Geothermal systems at 4km depth, evaluation of seismic hazard for carbon sequestration projects,
structural model construction for seismic hazard evaluation at nuclear installations, and contributions to Competent
Persons Reports on hydrocarbon prospects.

From 1985 to 1997, he is in charge of characterization of sub-surface fracture and fault systems from well and seismic
data, including their permeability and flow properties. He took a major role in the investigations for an underground
repository for UK radwaste at Sellafield (1989 to 1997): technical and financial management of data acquisition and
interpretation, together with preparation of technical reports for Public Inquiries. He is the leader of multicontractor and
multi-disciplinary teams covering a wide range of earth science applications.

During this time, he also worked on development of geological models for geothermal reservoir developments (USA,
Indonesia), for nuclear installations in the UK and France, and for hydrocarbon reservoirs. His specialization was
in remote sensing interpretations (eg radar interferometry at an onshore oilfield in the Far East) and in fault activity

He is Fellow of the Geological Society of London (Chartered Geologist), European Association of Geologists and
Engineers and hold memberships in different Petroleum Exploration and Geological Associations and was Chairman of
Geological Remote Sensing Group of Geological Society.
