About the Speaker:
Jeff Lonnee, currently leading the geoscience team for the Kashagan development, has been a vital part of Shell International Exploration & Production in Houston, USA, since 2019. His rich experience includes roles such as Senior Geologist at Qatar Shell GTL Ltd and as a Carbonate Geologist at Shell International. He holds a Ph.D. in Geology from the University of Alberta and has extensive expertise in Paleozoic carbonate sedimentology, diagenesis, reservoir characterization, and inorganic geochemistry.

  • Explore the significance of carbonate reservoirs, which contain roughly 60% of the world’s hydrocarbon reserves.
  • Understand the challenges in exploring and developing carbonate reservoirs.
  • Learn about various reservoir types, depositional systems, and diagenetic environments.
  • Gain insights into the unique aspects of reservoir characterization in carbonate reservoirs compared to siliciclastic systems.
  • This lecture is particularly valuable for students and professionals in geology, petroleum engineering, and related fields. It offers a comprehensive overview of the main challenges and methodologies involved in the exploration and development of carbonate reservoirs.

We look forward to welcoming you to an enlightening session with Jeff Lonnee!
